Birgitte has continued this work to organise, support, evaluate and document media development; women’s role in the media; and community media in many of the more than 70 countries and 300 realities, where she has worked. Birgitte is a lifetime member of the international community radio association AMARC’s ‘Women’s International Network’ (WIN); the President of the board of the Community Media Forum Europe; and has just stepped down as a member of the International Board of IAWRT (International Women in Radio and TV) - all engagements with a focus to advance women’s empowerment in and through the media.
