Rise is an advocacy membership group which supports women from all backgrounds working in the broadcast media technology sector. The goal is to ensure that there is a diverse and gender balanced workforce across the specific areas of: engineering, technical operations, sales, marketing, and business. Today the Rise network involves more than 2500 members around the globe.
We are thrilled to announce that we are sponsoring Rise – a group for Women in Broadcast in 2022/23.
The #media #technology sector is still predominantly employing white males. This needs to change and Rise is playing it’s part by championing a gender balanced workforce and giving practical support to women getting into and on in the industry. We are proud to be supporting Rise’s work, including its #RiseUp Academy education outreach programme, its annual Awards, networking events, & training sessions.
“We are truly enthusiastic to be working with Rise who are offering guidance, encouragement and support to talented women within broadcast media tech, which will increase attraction as well as strengthening and building our industry even stronger.” – Crister Fritzson, CEO of Net Insight.
Additionally, its #RiseMentoring programme opens today, for applications from across the UK, USA, Canada, APAC region and, new for 2022, Central Europe and Northern Europe. This incredible free, six month programme supports women who are working in, or aspiring to work in the industry.
