RAB/BMI Scholarship Program Rising through the Ranks
2011 Women in Radio Management & Leadership Training Seminar
The customized curriculum included practical and real world applications that managers immediately put to use in the workplace. "It was hands down the best conference I've been to.

Mary Baxter, General Sales Manager for Clear Channel Los Angeles also elaborated by stating, "I seriously enjoyed the course. It was great."
"The class of 2011 represented a diverse cross section of top-level managers from Radio's ownership and markets across the country. The sessions provided in-depth information, interaction and best practices to grow participants' knowledge, careers and revenue for the radio industry," said Sheila Kirby, SVP Professional Development, Radio Advertising Bureau. "BMI and MIW both continue to lead the way in their support of Radio, women and excellence for the Radio industry. It is an honor to partner with BMI and MIW to offer career advancement for women in Radio"
