Females in the Broadcast Industry to Host First Event at IBC 2014


LR-FBI-emailLR-FBIRoss Video is sponsoring a new Females in the Broadcast Industry (FBI) event at IBC 2014, bringing together the industry’s women for a lively and thought-provoking panel discussion and networking lunch.

The panel will discuss what companies and the industry are doing to attract women to the industry and asks: Is this enough? How do we educate the next generation of women for non-traditional female roles? And what can those of us already working in this fabulous/exciting industry do to encourage more women to join us?

Panelists include Sadie Groom (MD, Bubble & Squeak), Lesley Johnson (operations director, BBC Worldwide), Laura Thommen (VP enterprise sales, MelroseTec), Carrie Wootten (head of commercial development, Ravensbourne) and Nicki Fisher (sales director EMEA, Clear-Com).

The event, which is open to all, will be held from 12.30-2:00 p.m. on Sept. 13 in Room D201, on the second floor of the Elysium Suites.

“We are very pleased to be supporting this FBI initiative and we feel it’s very important for women to have a dedicated forum that can work towards opening up opportunities in the industry,” said David Dowling, EMEA sales director of Ross Video. “When I look around the broadcast world I’m consistently shocked at the very small number of women in sales, technical and operational roles. That’s something that needs to change. There are a great many well-educated and motivated women who are perfectly capable of developing a successful career in broadcast given the chance. We look forward to working with FBI to help open these doors and ensure we see women working in every type of role in broadcast.”
