Exceptional Merit Media Awards (EMMA) in Los Angeles!

EMMA awards will be held November 6, 2011 at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles from 12-3 PM.  

The EMMAs began in 1986 to recognize exceptional coverage of women’s issues across media outlets.  Since its inception, the EMMAs have recognized contributions from the likes of Sheryl WuDunn, Ellen Goodman, Cokie Roberts, and Diane Sawyer, Glamour Magazine, and Ms. Magazine.  Always a forward thinker, Judy Chavis, this year’s EMMA’s chairwoman, has made it her goal to attract new outlets in music, entertainment, and sports to the event. In keeping with the event’s desire to merge the seriousness of the material with a fun and spirited atmosphere, the band Red Sea Rising will be performing.
