Largest Group of FCC Women Leaders Gather in Honor of Women’s History Month

The Minority Media and Telecommunications Council is celebrating women’s history month with outstanding FCC women leaders, April 10, 2013, in the National Council of Negro Women Building, Washington, DC. Former Commissioner Deborah Taylor Tate, a Distinguished Adjunct Senior Fellow at The Free State Foundation, is the lead opening speaker and will introduce FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel as the opening “storyteller.” FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn will provide the closing remarks. In the history of the FCC, 15 women have been appointed FCC commissioners. Many of these talented women, along with others who have held important positions at the Commission, will be in attendance.

In addition to an extensive list of FCC women leaders, Commissioner Robert McDowell will also join the celebration, sharing his stories of the remarkable women he has worked with over his years at the FCC, including his all-woman staff.
