Rise is the global advocacy membership organisation striving for a gender balanced and diverse workforce across the broadcast media and entertainment sector.
Funded by our industry, for our industry, Rise aims to ensure a sustainable pipeline of female talent at all levels across engineering, product innovation, technical operations, sales, marketing, editorial and commercial. Rise achieves this through opening more opportunities for women; mentoring, upskilling, connecting and elevating them throughout their career via four programmes:
- Rise Mentoring – a unique, award-winning annual mentoring scheme
- Rise Events – regular networking events, seminars and training
- Rise Awards – celebrating women’s skills and achievements to the industry
- Rise Up – encouraging a more diverse and inclusive sector via working with the education sector, from primary schools through to Universities.
This year, Rise wants to support as many women as possible – but this can’t happen without industry support.
