#GalsNGear amplifies and supports women in the technical fields of film and screen media through educational opportunities, mentoring, public speaking, technical training and networking events.

The program was founded by Amy DeLouise, originally as a program with WIFV-DC who continue to work with us as a partner and/or fiscal sponsor on many events.  #GALSNGEAR has offered pop-up panels, networking events, virtual conferences and training opportunities for women since 2016. Recent events have been produced in partnership with the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB), Future Media Conferences (FMC), Women in Film & Video (DC), Verizon Media, Blackmagic Design, Adobe, and Broadcast Beat.
