Event for radio working mums
An event takes place next week to help any potential female radio stars of the future succeed in the industry by balancing a career with a family life.
The London branch of the Radio Academy are hosting the session on 19 January with speakers including former Radio 1 presenter Nemone.
New networking organisation Young Women Working in Media have joined up with The Radio Academy to host this session about how to have it all, from the women who are making motherhood work for them.
The panel will be hosted by Sandy Warr, Chair of the London Events Committee, and joining her on the panel will be Natasha Desborough (writer and broadcaster, ex Invicta and XFM, now at BBC 6 Music), Lisa Kerr (Director of Strategy at RadioCentre) and Nemone Metaxas (Presenter formerly at Kiss Manchester and Radio Now, now on BBC 6 Music).
Those attending will hear about the panel's varying experiences of motherhood and what advice they'd pass on to the next generation. What challenges did they face and what can be done to help working families balance their work and home lives?
Nemone says: "The last 12 months of being back in work after having a baby have been fascinating. Juggling a new little person’s needs with the demands of life with a job in the media. Keeping all the balls in the air takes some doing…and they don’t always stay up but its fun trying! Being a mum has definitely given me another perspective on it all."
The session is aimed at anyone who works (or wants to work) in radio and also wants to have a family, or who has a story of their own to share.
The event is free if you're already a member of the Radio Academy and takes place at The Gibson Building on Rathbone Street in London on 19 January from 6pm.
