Administrative History

Chicago Women in Broadcasting was organized on February 9, 1972, during a meeting of eight women from various Chicago broadcasting stations. This group, the original Steering Committee, met every two weeks after that to lay the foundation for the organization. The first formal meeting was held on September 27,1972, and more than sixty women attended it. The purpose of this organization was to improve the status of women in broadcasting and to develop their full potential as professionals. Programs were planned to meet the expressed needs of the members, and topics have ranged from engineering to equal rights, from labor to leadership. Membership was limited to women who were presently or had been employed by a Chicago-area radio or television station, free-lancers working at these stations, and students of radio and television at local universities.
