Newsroom

Ongoing

Through GGM UK Newsroom, we continue to support our graduates with ongoing training, mentors, equipment, spaces for ideas-sharing, platforms for their content, invitations to special events and internships. Our Newsroom is mobile and sometimes virtual! We like to maintain flexibility so that we can fit around our GlobalGirls’ busy schedules and geographical diversity, but meetings tend to take place in venues across South London. 

Mini-Trainings

Autumn 2023

#The Executive Producers

We run regular trainings in the UK, including mini-trainings as skills-boosters, to keep our graduates up to speed with the fast pace of technological change in the media. 

Thanks to social media channels like YouTube, everyone now has the chance to be a producer. And with video binge platforms like Netflix and Amazon taking over TV, content has never been in such demand. In this two-day workshop, we put a new generation of female ‘creators’ in the Producer’s chair – asking YOU ‘if YOU were to create a TV series about something that mattered to YOU – what would it be?’

Through an open and inclusive environment, we will collectively workshop the ideas, work in groups to storyboard and start cutting a trailer for YOUR dream series.

Why should you apply?

GGM UK ‘mini-trainings’ are designed to up-skill young women with an interest in filmmaking and storytelling. We aim to empower young women by giving them the tools to amplify their voices and share their stories with the world.

Register your interest today and receive more information very soon.
