Grossman states: “When I started in the business it took a good ten years before anyone took you seriously. By the time you had confidence in your abilities you had about ten years to do the job. After that, the marginalization began to happen. Older executives, creatives ]and talent were systematically being moved aside around the age of 40. Ironically, it was at a time that they were doing some of their best work.”

Founded in 2016, GreenLight Women seeks to "fight ageism and provide a community of support and encouragement for the thousands of women who are navigating getting older in a youth-oriented business; to help each other achieve our individual goals, to promote diversity, to share our knowledge and experience and to change attitudes about aging," per the organization. Along with Grossman and Bierman, the board consists of Marion Rosenberg, personal manager and literary consultant, producer Lucy Webb, Pamela Rodi, CEO of Rodi Marketing and Sony consultant, Betsy Pollock, formerly of the American Film Institute, and Hollace Davids, onetime Universal Pictures special events executive.

The following is a list of women who have been elected head of state or government of their respective countries since the interwar period (1918–1939), and below that is a list of appointed heads of state.

Of the nonprofit's formation Rosenberg explained: “At dinner with Ivy I mentioned that I had heard myself referred to as an 'old biddy.' She almost dropped her knife and fork. That’s when we realized that the question of age in our industry had never been addressed. It took us a mere 20 minutes to write down a long list of names of women we knew who had been impacted by ageism or who we thought might see it looming in their future. At 83 years old, I am still a functioning member of our industry, and I wish the same and more for all our members. Experience is invaluable.”

Added Bierman: “Women in their 60s and 70s were coming to me to handle their severance negotiations after being pushed out of their long-term entertainment industry positions. Marion and I envisioned an organization that would embrace experienced senior women to ensure that their talent is utilized and celebrated. We recognized a genuine need and so, with our founding members, we mobilized and created a space to support and promote older women and the diverse content that they create.”
