Eleven days and counting until the official Sound Women launch at the Radio Festival in Manchester. And we’ve been busy…
We’ve been approaching all the women on our Sound Women inspirational 200 List – welcome Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders, Anita Anand, Zoe Ball and Jane Garvey! Also Susan Marling, Kate Bland, Jane Ellison, Janet Graves, and a host of other brilliant programme-makers.
RadioCentre and the Radio Academy have both agreed to support our aims.
And we’re talking to a 25-girl choir, who we’re hoping will blow us out of the room at our first big networking event in November.
This website is up and running – although we plan to add more pages celebrating the work of women in audio… And you can now find us on facebook, LinkedIn and twitter.
Finally, we have had the go ahead for out first mentoring scheme – run in conjunction with the BBC – and are working hard to get funding for our leadership scheme, networking groups across the UK, research, and a series of workshops.
