A podcast festival bringing together innovative women working in audio and digital media.

Hosted by WNYC Studios on June 15 - 17, 2016 at The Jerome L. Greene Performance Space in NYC.
Werk It brings together women working in audio and digital media who are looking to hone their skills, meet others in their field, and learn from peers and experienced industry professionals.
There will be uncomfortable conversations and invigorating debates. There will be mentoring, networking, and immersive training sessions. Plus, there will be three straight nights of live podcast tapings from some of the most provocative and inspiring women hosts in the biz.
