On May 5, 2008, the McGill Institute for the Study of Canada (MISC) hosted "Women and Radio in Canada," a bilingual public symposium that brought together professionals and academics to explore the challenges for women in radio in the 21st century.
Over the course of two panel sessions, they tackled issues such as the role of women in the industry, the historical contributions of women and minorities, and the differences between working in French and in English in Montreal. Participants shared some secrets of the trade and anecdotes about the wonderful world of radio broadcasting.
