About Women On Air
Women on Air is a community of like-minded women and men who want to hear and see more women on the airwaves. We’re a completely voluntary networking group that runs seminars, events and informal training workshops to help give women the skills and confidence to go on radio and television. All women involved, from the speakers to committee members, volunteer their time to ensure a greater diversity of voices on the airwaves.
Women on Air events and conferences provide female area experts with media contacts, practical broadcasting tips, inside information and personal contacts. Through our seminars and meetings, women come to understand that their opinions are valid, and wanted, by radio researchers and producers. They also form networks of women who encourage and support them to get on radio or TV.
Proceeds from the sale of tickets will go towards funding Women On Air not-for-profit initiatives including training programmes, workshops, mentoring and events.
