Change the Media – Change the Culture
Mission Statement and Initiatives
Influence Lab Women exists to inspire and empower Christian women around the world to influence media and entertainment.
We believe in maximizing our potential, faith, and lives with a global perspective. To be real Women of Influence, we must create space to connect, educate, and engage with world issues, initiatives, and influencers globally.
Recognizing we live in a media-driven culture, we engage Christian women who are involved in media and entertainment to become leaders and influencers using their talents and skills in their workplaces, and within the global community to change culture.
To cultivate Christian thought leaders who are involved in media and entertainment aligning from multiple careers and platforms of influence, and want to elevate the voice of women within God’s purposes to bring about global change for the Church and the world.
We host Influence Evenings that curate intelligent conversations around global issues. We post a bi-monthly Journal, that highlights key women leaders called, Inner Views, that focus on engaging women on cultural issues through inspirational books, videos and blog posts.
