Over the weekend, Fiona Burton Gravity Media’s Head of Post Production in the UK attended the first ever Rise – Women in Broadcast Retreat held in Lancaster. The 2020 Mentoring cohort was not able to meet in person at any point during the scheme and it was for this reason the retreat was such an important date in this year’s calendar.
Fiona told us how inspiring it was to see all the mentees and learn of how many of them have been able to secure promotions and gain confidence to reach for their dream job. The retreat was a wonderful weekend of meeting people in real life and forging new friendships.
Huge thanks to Rise’s fantastic leader Carrie Wootten for organising the weekend, Marina Kalkanis from M2S Media for sponsoring this fantastic initiative, and Michelle Parry for the amazing location. It’s great to see all the fabulous ladies doing great things in our industry.
Gravity Media is proud to be supporting Rise’s work, including its Rise Up education outreach programme, annual Awards, networking events, and training sessions.
