Welcome to...

In the spirit of TEDxWomen, the Paley Center is spotlighting many of the extraordinary, accomplished women who have come through our doors and told their stories and shared their expertise in our public and industry events.

Women@Paley offers Paley Center exclusive clips and full program videos with journalists, social leaders, executives, and women from all the creative arts of media: writers, producers, actors, and directors. Some of the videos are from the Paley Center’s 2003 to 2006 She Made It initiative.

We invite you to share these videos with your own online communities as you browse the four tabs in the player's drop-down menu: Creative Talents, Journalists, Politicos/Activists, Executives.

Please Note: The videos cover many years of our institutional history, so you will see some with language from The Museum of Television & Radio (we changed our name in 2007).
