Association for Women in Communications

In celebration of its 100th Anniversary, the Association for Women in Communications (AWC) launched 100 Women of Note, a program designed to recognize remarkable women communicators who made their mark over the past century. The announcement was made at AWC's annual conference held Oct 15-17, 2009 in Seattle, WA, where the organization began 100 years ago.

The 100 Women of Note program celebrates AWC's 100-year history (1909-2009) of championing the advancement of women across all communications disciplines by recognizing excellence, promoting leadership, and positioning its members at the forefront of the evolving communications era. Sponsoring the launch of the 100 Women of Note is the Life Extension Foundation.

Speaking at the conference, AWC 2009 National Chair Sheryl Liddle said: "AWC has a long tradition of recognizing outstanding communicators. This program is designed to showcase the contributions made by women communicators over the past century and to honor the significant impact these women had on the course of communications, whether in their local communities, regionally, nationally or even internationally."

Candidates will be women nominated by AWC members and the public at large who have formed the backbone of communications for the last 100 years - pioneers who weren't allowed to attend press conferences, who communicated anyway long before they had equal rights; glass ceiling breakers who risked their reputations to get their messages out; journalists who risk their lives to serve on the frontlines, or those leading the way in social media, pushing the envelope into the online and electronic space.

To make a nomination for the 100 Women of Note visit website. For more information, or to become an AWC member call (703) 370-7436.

About the Association for Women in Communications

Founded in 1909, seven women journalism students at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA, created an honorary women's journalism society called Theta Sigma Phi, the forerunner of today's Association for Women in Communications (AWC). Today, AWC is a strong national network of more than 2,500 active members, 26 professional chapters, over 20 student chapters, and a large number of independents.
