Why CGEM?

Critics Groups for Equality in Media (CGEM) is a professional journalists coalition seeking to improve awareness of the value of women, people of color, LGBTQ and disabled journalists who cover the worlds of film and television. CGEM is comprised of six national critics organizations that champion underrepresented yet influential voices in entertainment journalism.

CGEM seeks to improve engagement with studios, networks, PR firms and other entertainment organizations; push for better pay and representation among media outlets on behalf of the groups’ members; and nurture next-generation voices in entertainment journalism.
