Association for Women in Communication

AWC-LogoWomen find the Association for Women in Communications a great resource for developing professional relationships, and gaining knowledge about careers in communication. During chapter meetings, members engage in active discussions, plan work site tours, and hear presentations from women in a communication discipline. AWC also holds networking, interviewing and resume workshops throughout the school year.

AWC’s mission is to “champion the advancement of women across all communication disciplines by recognizing excellence, promoting leadership and positioning its members at the forefront of the evolving communications era.” Group meetings take place the first week of each month during the school year from September to June.  Check out the Seattle Professional Chapter, as well as the national AWC website.
