Women on Air was crucial in helping me (and countless other women like me) to literally ‘get on air.’ With the challenges posed by Brexit and the need to have balanced and informed voices as part of the debate – there is a democratic need to hear the views of women. After all, women make up approximately half the population and it’s critical to hear from a wide, balanced variety of views and perspectives, represented on the airwaves. Women on Air training, insights, advice and support gave me more confidence in saying ‘Yes,’ to those interview and media requests. As a part of the Women on Air community, I was supported and encouraged to find my own voice and be a better communicator on media.
