Name: Bianca Miglioretto
Organisation: Isis International
Role: Community Radio Associciate
For the last 24 years I was active in Community Radio mainly producing programmes on women's rights and struggle and development issues with focus on Asia Pacific. Since 1990 I am a community radio trainer, covering radio production including journalistic as well as technical skills and radio establishment, management, evaluation, community participation, programming, structure, vision, mission etc. For the last 4 years I worked with Isis International, a 35 year old women's organisation based in Manila, Philippines that works globally in the field of communication with the regional focus on Asia Pacific. As a community radio trainer I had the opportunity to conduct extensive radio trainings in Madagaska, Ukraine, India, Laos, Indonesia, Philippines and of course in several countries in Europe. The training were conducted for individual community radio stations, or organisations such as UNDP, UNIFEM, Swiss Development Communications, AMARC - World Association of Communty Radio Broadcasters and of course Isis International. At the first AMARC Asia Pacific conference in November 2006 in Jakarta I was elected into the regional board of AMARC AP as Vice-President for the Women's International Network and re-elected at the 2nd AMARC AP conference in Bangalore in February 2010.
