The Broadway Women’s Fund has released its inaugural “Women to Watch” list, a lineup of talented women artists ready to work on Broadway shows. Among them is Katie Gamelia, a 2004 graduate from the Academy. 
Broadway's "Women to Watch" was in response to Rachel Chavkin’s 2019 call to action that there are women and people of color ready to work in Broadway. Many in favor of the call agreed however; they did not know the names of many women in the industry. This list was created to address the issue.

The lineup consists of 50 women who work as directors, designers, producers, and agents. The list of greats were selected by the Broadway Women’s Fund leadership which includes the likes of Rachel Chakin, Lynn Ahrens, Chita Rivera, Alia Jones Harbey, Theresa Rebeck, and Rachel Sussman. The list is a Who's Who of the talented women working behind the scenes. 

Academy alumnus Katie Gamelia is a graduate of the Academy’s theater program. She is currently working as a Broadway agent.
