The application window is now open for the Mentoring & Inspiring Women in Radio 2019 Mildred Carter MIW Group Mentoring Program. Currently in its 18th year, the program pairs up-and-coming women, who currently work in the radio industry, with female professionals recognized as leaders in all aspects of radio broadcasting and media.
A total of four candidates from within the radio broadcasting industry — including management, sales, marketing, programming, and digital disciplines — will be selected for the 2019 program. Of those, at least one spot will be designated for a programming candidate and one for a digital candidate.
“This unique initiative provides an amazing opportunity for mentees to gain valuable insight, knowledge, and access to some of the most influential women in radio,” said Lindsay Cerajewski, chair of the 2019 MIW Group’s Mentoring Committee and National Sales Manager at Entercom Chicago. “It is very rewarding to watch our mentees grow professionally throughout the year.”
The MIW Group Mentoring Program is named in memory of Mildred Carter, who, along with her husband Andrew “Skip” Carter, founded the first African American-owned radio station in the U.S. in 1950.
