The International Association of Women in Radio and Television - Kenya chapter (IAWRT Kenya) is a global non-profit professional organisation of women working in electronic media, technology and allied media. It is a powerful global network of media practitioners, with an international board and a growing number of chapters (14) that serve to tackle issues at local country levels. IAWRT strives to meet the urgent global challenges faced by women in and around the media. The IAWRT Kenya chapter has over 100 members spread across media houses and other like-minded organisations. It received its charter to operate as a local chapter in 2005. One of its core objectives is to support the professional development of members through the exchange of ideas, experiences and technical knowledge, which in turn is utilised as media skills to ensure that women’s concerns, views and values are an integral part of electronic programming.
