WASHINGTON, DC – The NAB Education Foundation and American Women in Radio and Television (AWRT) are partnering to host a think tank for executive-level women in media. The group will examine strategies for advancing more women into the top ranks of the media industry. FCC Commissioner Deborah Taylor Tate will attend, and invitations will be extended to senior-level female executives. The event, titled “New Directions: Women in Media, the Path to Success,” will take place March 13 at NAB headquarters in Washington.
“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.”
“Our goal should be to promote diversity at all levels of media: in the boardrooms and the control rooms alike,” said FCC Commissioner Deborah Taylor Tate. “We need to see more women in broadcasting who are making decisions, making deals, and truly making history.”
