Women in Media Announces 2024 WiM ICON Award Honoree

by | May 21, 2024

Women in Media is proud to announce this year’s recipient of its annual ICON Award. For landmark achievement in public relations, communications and community building, WiM is honored to award Susan Lewis this year’s highest distinction. 

Susan Lewis has tirelessly served the cinema and entertainment community for four decades — smoothing the launch and adoption of countless innovative technologies. Her clients have consistently represented industry leaders including Cinema Products, Steadicam, Litepanels, Zeiss, Schneider, Matthews, Tiffen, SmallHD, Teradek, and dozens more.

One of her unique roles is being a daily conduit between filmmakers and the companies whose products serve these creatives. Nancy Schreiber, ASC shares, “Susan always has her pulse on what’s brand new and about-to-be-newsworthy. She makes sure that we artists and technicians get our hands on this gear immediately.” She is an Associate Member of the American Society of Cinematographers and a long-time supporter of Cine Gear Expo. The show’s co-founder and WiM’s 2023 ICON Award recipient Juliane Grosso added, “Susan is an irreplaceable gem in the Cine Gear Expo family.” 

“Connection is the invisible force that holds our world together,” adds Steven and Andrew Tiffen of The Tiffen Company. “Susan Lewis conveys a distinguished connective quality that lasts a lifetime, paired with unmatchable effort and a big heart.”

Women in Media Executive Director, Tema Staig concludes, “When I founded the organization, people bemoaned that they couldn’t find talented, hard working women behind the scenes. We proved that there are many, they just need to be recognized. I’m absolutely thrilled to raise awareness of fabulous women such as Susan Lewis who shape the industry.”

Women in Media tips its hat to Susan Lewis — and will be presenting her with the ICON Award at Cine Gear Expo at Warner Bros in Burbank on June 7, 2024.

About Women In Media

In 2010, Women In Media started as an informal group of like minded entertainment professionals who wanted to network and hire more women. In 2017, WiM became a 501(c)(3) Charity ~ EIN# 82-1807178, and expanded services to include education and initiatives. The cornerstone program is the CAMERAderie Initiative, which has boosted the careers of women and gender non-conforming crew from every department with development, production, and post production of high production short films. Through mentorship, education, and long term support, with an eye towards sustainable jobs, WiM has helped propel the industry closer to the goal of equality for women and gender non-conforming folks working in every crew, every department, on every show.
