A Proud Heritage
The Association for Women in Communications is the one organization that recognizes the complex relationships that exist across communications disciplines. Modern communicators must demonstrate competence in varied disciplines and be able to network and make career moves across the broad spectrum of communications fields.
Disciplines represented within the association include: print and broadcast journalism, television and radio production, film, advertising, public relations, marketing, graphic design, multi-media design, and photography. The list is continually growing as the profession expands into newer media.
Founded in 1909 as Theta Sigma Phi at the University of Washington in Seattle, the Association has continued to grow and change. The founding principles, however, still serve as touchstones. The local organization, AWC Detroit Chapter, was established in 1938. The chapter was founded through the efforts of Theta Sigma Phi (TSP) alumni from various Michigan schools.
