dB Broadcast is proud to support Rise-Up, the new industry-led schools outreach programme that inspires and educates children about engineering and technology opportunities in the broadcast, media and entertainment industries.

‘Rise Up’ is a programme of school workshops that will be delivered throughout the UK to inspire pupils throughout their primary and secondary education. It is the latest initiative from Rise, the organisation that aims to open up more opportunities for female broadcast professionals through networking events, seminars, a mentoring programme, as well as celebrating skills and achievements with the Rise Awards.

Graham Pearl, Engineering Director, said: “We are proud to be part of this collective effort across our industry, and we recognise the importance of achieving a gender balance in all professions.” Other supporters of Rise-Up are: BT Sport, Sky, iabm, EMS and DPP.
