Soundwomen to be celebrated at Parliamentary event

The achievements of Sound Women will be celebrated by the BBC and commercial Radio at an event at the Houses of Parliament.

On 2nd December, BBC Director of Radio Helen Boaden and Siobhan Kenny, Chief Executive of the Radio Centre will join industry colleagues and parliamentarians from the House of Commons and House of Lords.

Sound Women patrons Magic FM’s Angie Greaves, Radio 4’s Jane Garvey and Radio 1’s Annie Nightingale will also be in attendance as well as a host of VIP guests from across the radio industry to mark its 3rd birthday.

Sound Women patron and BBC Radio 4 presenter Jane Garvey commented on the event, “I’m really proud to be a patron of Sound Women. Radio is beginning to better represent audiences but I believe there is still work to be done to ensure women’s voices are heard on-air, and so that women are in positions to make big editorial decisions.”

Soundwomen was established in 2011 to help women get more out of working in radio and to help the radio industry get more out of women’s skills and talents. In its first three years Sound Women has commissioned ‘a Women on-air’ research report which they say has helped build understanding of gender diversity issues in UK radio.
