A MARCH 13th conference co-sponsored by the NAB EDUCATION FOUNDATION and AMERICAN WOMEN IN RADIO AND TELEVISION will serve as a "think tank" for executive-level women in media. "NEW DIRECTIONS: WOMEN IN MEDIA, THE PATH TO SUCCESS" will take place at NAB headquarters in WASHINGTON and will be attended by FCC Commissioner DEBORAH TAYLOR TATE.
TATE says, "Our goal should be to promote diversity at all levels of media: in the boardrooms and the control rooms alike. We need to see more women in broadcasting who are making decisions, making deals, and truly making history."
"While the number of female leaders in our industry has increased in recent years, there is certainly more work to be done," said AWRT President MARIA K. BRENNAN. "This think tank is a powerful, proactive step in the right direction. We're proud to partner with Commissioner TATE and NABEF to help ensure its success."
"This is an excellent opportunity for educators and female media executives to come together and discuss the vital role that women play in media," said NAB President and CEO DAVID K. REHR. "The idea was spearheaded by FCC Commissioner DEBORAH TAYLOR TATE, and we are proud to co-host the event with AWRT."
