Our History: A Proud Heritage

The Association for Women in Communications Detroit Chapter has a long history of championing the advancement of women and honoring excellence across all communications disciplines.  Our organization is built on the capabilities of dedicated women who are passionate about seeing women succeed. 

We provide members with various forums to connect, offer expert-led programs that help members diversify their knowldge and keep pace with change, and give one another the support and mentorship to succeed. With more than 80 years of chapter history, we continue to support women in communications by providing a strong foundation for personal and professional growth.

In addition to our legacy of supporting women’s advancement, AWC Detroit has a special focus on inspiring literacy, which is a critical cause for all communicators! We strive to “make a difference” in peoples’ lives.
