PSWIFT created the Broken Glass Awards to honor women who have broken through the glass ceiling in film, television, the arts and philanthropy to pave the way for others to follow. Each year the BGA's honor four women who have distinguished themselves as wonderful examples and successful pioneers in the arts and philanthropy. Some past honorees include Jacqueline Bissett, Della Reese, Suzanne de Passe, Gale Ann Hurd, the Team Todd sisters, Kim Waltrip, Gloria Greer, Donna Mills, Raquel Welch, Shirley Jones, Alfre Woodard, Ruta Lee, Mary Hart and philanthropists Jackie Lee Houston, Helene Galen, Barbara Keller, Lisa Houston. Over 300 guests attend the BGA's, and with Red Carpet and media coverage, it is one of the outstanding events of the social Gala season in the Palm Springs area. Proceeds from the BGA's are directed to scholarships enabling young people to advance their educations in film and television studies. PSWIFT was founded in 2000 to nurture, mentor and empower women and men pursuing careers in film and television. The organization has more than 200 members and sponsors educational seminars and luncheons, social networking among industry professionals, job listings and outreach to students in arts and entertainment.
