Jane Garvey portraitPresented by Jane Garvey

Wednesday 7th March 6.45pm

One of the biggest news stories of the year has been how women at the top end of broadcasting have found they are being paid less than their male colleagues. Add to this the impact of high profile sexual behaviour cases, and the #metoo movement, and some feel there’s something of a revolution going on.

  • But what are the standards that should be acceptable?
  • And how can women in the radio and audio industry make sure they don’t still end up “with the fuzzy end of the lollipop” when it comes to pay, basic rights and career advancement?
  • And how can men and women in our industry help to create a fair work environment for all?

For this special RIGtrain masterclass, award-winning broadcaster and member of the Radio Academy Hall of Fame, Jane Garvey, is our host as we hear from experts in law, HR, negotiation, freelance survival and from those who have successfully asserted their creativity in the audio world by doing things differently. Speakers to be announced.

Producers: Sue Clark and Husain Husaini

When: Wednesday March 7th 2018 at 6.45 pm

In association with our friends at the British Podcast Awards, RIGtrain presents a masterclass featuring the very best in the business - award winners, podcast insiders, and distribution gurus.flyer

Our last event on the subject, was provocatively titled “How to Become a Podcast Millionaire”. Two years on, the podcast sector has exploded, with new ways of monetising content, and some podcasters are starting to prove that it just might be done. Our host is Alix Fox, presenter of The Guardian’s Close Encounters podcast, reigning “Sex Educator of the Year”, and X-rated agony aunt on The Modern Mann.
