International Association of Women in Radio & Television

IAWRT is a global network of 14 national chapters and members in 54 countries. IAWRT members are professional communicators or researchers in media and communications. We strive to meet the urgent global challenges faced by women in and around the media.

IAWRT is committed to the enhancement of women’s role and participation in media as gender equality cannot be achieved without gender parity in media and communication. We are a non-government organization (NGO) in consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).

IAWRT advances its mission through national country chapters, organizes conferences, implements projects, undertakes training and activities, and collaborates with media organizations. We also build alliances with international and national like-minded organizations, through the UN CSW and other events. 

IAWRT is managed by an elected international board, which oversees funding initiatives for local chapter and for member activities.
