About The Events Calendar
What is the purpose of the events calendar?
The Boston Women in Media & Entertainment events calendar is intended to provide
our members with a simple interface to promote their professional events to the public
and to other members.
What can be posted to the calendar?
Any networking event, training course, seminar, forum, conference, fundraisers (e.g.
concerts, golf tournaments, charity walks), as well as for-profit events (e.g. concerts,
fairs, exhibits, theatre). Events should be demonstrably relevant to professionals in
media and entertainment and their families.
Events held outside Massachusetts are generally excluded from the calendar. Some
exceptions are made to relevant events in other areas (e.g. out of state conferences,
relevant events in Rhode Island, Connecticut and New Hampshire)
Who can post to the calendar?
Boston Women in Media & Entertainment welcomes all members and partners to post

encouraged, but not necessary for approval. BWME member’s involvement in the
event must be clear. If it is not evident from event description, please include in the
