What is "Lift AsYou Climb?"
Lift as you climb is a concept reminding us that as we improve our lives and situations in the world, that we do not forget to help those around us. It asks that as we challenge ourselves to move forward, that we help others to do the same.
In keeping with this idea, we champion Women on Set as an organization that is both for our community and made by our community. As a requirement to be listed in the directory, we ask that each person give some of their time or resources to make Women on Set an even better community than before. Here are examples of what you can do to help:
- Contact and book a speaker for a Women on Set Meeting
- Create Instagram posts for the Women on Set Instagram account
- Send out a monthly newsletter to engage the community and provide updates
- Apply for grants to fund Women On Set
- Donate your graphic design, website management, photography or video skills to create content for Women On Set
- Host a Women On Set meeting yourself sharing a unique and helpful skill you have
Women On Set is run 100% by volunteers and we are always thankful for any help. Please let us know if you have any other ideas for how you would like to contribute to make Women On Set a better organization.
What should I put in my profile?
You can view our create a profile page here to see what information we will ask for; you can also view our current crew directory to get an idea of what profiles are currently on the site.
What about other departments?
We support all of our fellow filmmaking females and understand how vital each role is to a production; however, Women on Set has decided to focus our resources towards the technical crew support positions at this time, with the possibility of adding more positions for talent in the future.
Women on Set is a grassroots effort led by women working full-time jobs in the film industry. We are growing the community over time, but this can only be done with everyone's support. If you are interested in helping expand the directory, please volunteer your time or financial support.
Everyone is welcome to attend our monthly Women on Set meetings at the last Friday of each month.
