Speech: “Sister Courage: What it will take for women to make it to the top in radio once and for all”


It was a real treat to speak at the National Association of Broadcasters Radio Show in Charlotte NC on one of my favorite topics, “Sister Courage.” Women’s advancement to the executive offices in radio has stalled. There are many women and men who want to change that, so they asked me to address how women can make it to the top once and for all. We had a spirited conversation about fresh solutions for getting ahead personally while breaking glass ceilings for all women using principles of movement building.

“This was not a speech, it was a conversation, a story-telling, a wake-up call and an inspiration. I can’t tell you how many people came up to me afterward and said ‘she should be our keynote speaker to several thousand broadcasters!'”
–Joan Gerberding, President, Local Focus; Founder, Mentoring and Inspiring Women in Radio
