Juvelis was instrumental in navigating communications, both internal and external, as AMC Networks consolidated its networks under a centralized leadership structure in 2018. She handled all communications for AMCN’s acquisition of RLJ Entertainment and oversaw the relaunch of the company’s corporate website. She’s a big fan of BBC America’s “Killing Eve,” saying “shows like ‘Killing Eve,’ ‘Fleabag’ and ‘Better Things’ subvert so many female stereotypes and showcase truly multidimensional, rich female characters.”
What specifically does your company do to support and elevate the women who work there?
We have many initiatives supporting not only women but broader diversity and inclusion across the board: our vibrant ERG program supports a dozen groups representing many different communities, including the Women@AMCNetworks group which has the participation of more than 35% of our female employees; our “MentorUP” program that switches up the model, with junior employees mentoring senior execs; and our partnerships with WICT, NAMIC, New York Women in Film & Television, the Black Filmmakers Foundation and other organizations that are pushing for industry-wide change. All this comes with the active engagement and support from our most senior leaders, which has allowed these efforts to take root and really thrive.
