||Another Successful Rising Through the Ranks Seminar Concludes
The Radio Advertising Bureau, in conjunction with BMI and the Mentoring and Inspiring Women in Radio Group, recently completed its fifth annual Rising through the Ranks, Women in Radio Management & Leadership Training Program.
A total of 30 graduates made up the 2012 class of Rising Through the Ranks, after receiving scholarships to the highly-successful program that was held at the BMI offices in Nashville, August 29-30.
Scholarship recipients were selected and awarded by the three organizations. The two-day course emphasized the specific needs of women in management roles, including enhancing their overall management knowledge and skills.
Courses were led by Lynn Anderson, Integrated Media Solution Group; Lindsay Cerajewski, CBS Radio; Penny Everhard, BMI; Erica Farber, Radio Advertising Bureau; Katie Gambill, 5 Star Radio; Brandeis Hall, Radio Advertising Bureau; Scott Herman, CBS Radio; Julie Lane, Katz Marketing Solutions; Kay Olin, Local Focus and Alliance for Women in Radio; Danielle Outlaw, Neuhoff Media; Allison Smith, BMI; and Dan Spears, BMI.
The customized curriculum included practical and real world applications that managers immediately put to use in the workplace, including lessons on managing team personalities, integrated solutions, budgeting, forecasting, and P&Ls.
"It was so inspiring to be in a room with such wonderful people, all from the same industry, sharing so many different ideas," noted Cheryl Mulligan, senior account manager, Clear Channel Media and Entertainment. "This was real world training that I will take back and implement in my office."
"This year's class represents our future leaders within the radio industry," said Erica Farber, President and CEO, Radio Advertising Bureau. "With the help of BMI and MIW, these women are heading back to their offices invigorated, empowered and ready to implement the lessons learned at this seminar."
"With in-depth information, interaction with industry leaders, and best-practice teachings, graduates of the 2012 Women in Radio Management & Leadership Training Program will have a powerful impact on the industry in the years to follow," noted Michael Steinberg, BMI Senior VP of Licensing. "BMI is very proud to partner with the RAB and the MIW to offer the Rising Through the Ranks program."
In the last 10 years, over 200 BMI-funded scholarships for both Rising Through the Ranks and the FastStart Minority programs have been awarded. RAB's Professional Development team also offers a variety of sales and management courses via online webinars and in-person training.
