    Women in Media appoints three leaders to expanded board of directors

    CEO of Free TV Australia, Bridget Fair is amongst the new appointments to Women in Media’s board of directors, with Nicole McInnes, and Pooja Patel joining her, effective immediately, for a three-year term. 

    Fair said: “I’m proud to join the WIM board and to have the opportunity to contribute to the empowerment of professional women in the industry.

    “Our programs aim to enhance networking opportunities, skills development, and career advancement for women in media. Women have come a long way in the media sector but there is always more to be done.”

    McInnes is the managing director of Digital Wellness and adds her expertise in commercial management and digital leadership from her tenure with companies such as WW, Dell and Amex. Pooja Patel is an audit partner specialising in media and technology at Deloitte. 

    Victoria Laurie, founder and co-chair of WIM said: “We are delighted to welcome Bridget, Nicole, and Pooja to our board of directors. Each of them brings extensive networks and industry expertise that will enrich our efforts to support women working in the media sector across Australia.”

    The board additions follow Kym Middleton’s appointment as the inaugural general manager in January. Together, they will aim to address the persistent barriers faced by women in the media industry, as highlighted in the WIM Industry Insight Report 2023.

    The report found that the majority of women (54%) continue to be either unsure or explicitly dissatisfied with the progress of their careers.
