AMERICAN WOMEN IN RADIO & TELEVISION (AWRT) announced the addition of two new student chapters, AWRT HOWARD UNIVERSITY in WASHINGTON D.C. and AWRT SPELMAN COLLEGE in ATLANTA, GA.
"AWRT has been targeting historically black colleges as important growth areas for several years," AWRT Membership Mgr. LISA-MARIE GARDNER said. "This and other student-targeted initiatives will go a long way toward supporting our mission of advancing women in electronic media."
The mission of AWRT is to expose young women to different opportunities within the electronic media industry; a chance to interact and network with experienced leaders.
"We are thrilled to announce the expansion of AWRT with these two important student chapters," AWRT Pres. MARIA BRENNAN said. "We look forward to the members' contributions to AWRT as well as their future endeavors in the media."
