At most broadcast-based conferences women are in a minority, and there’s often just the singular token female speaker; but the Community Media Association (CMA) are setting the bar much higher.

Since the end of March 2012, there's been a distinct lact of content on the website and as you may have seen from previous posts, it''s because of an exciting new adventure. DigiEnable has take over Liz's (and Darren, her new partner's) lives, meeting some amazing people and already starting to work on some amazing projects.
As the majority of the work Liz will now do, will be under the DigiEnable branding, she wondered where this website would fit in.
