My personal adventure started 4 years ago with a membership and snowballed from there!  I am proud to say I am active in 3 chapters, holding a Board of Directors spot in the Midwest.  I completed our exclusive Premier Management Development Series in 2020. The relationships I’ve made across the nation have helped me professionally, but most importantly, I’m becoming a better leader with each event I attend.

I highly suspect 5 years from now, I’ll be able to pinpoint joining The WICT Network as a defining moment in my career journey.  Come join me and the other amazing members and see the impact it makes in YOUR career.

In 2017, I was new to the telecom industry, new to Charter Communications, and new to The WICT Network. The women in this organization were welcoming, engaging, and encouraging. The members of The WICT Network truly care about each other, and are strong advocates for not only women, but also diversity and inclusion.

When I joined The WICT Network in 2017, I knew nothing about it, but was immediately intrigued as it was “Women In Cable Telecommunications”. I have belonged to several groups in various industries throughout my career, but this was the first group actively engaging and focusing on women in the industry. I had no idea what an amazing opportunity this would turn out to be.

I am now a board member for the The WICT Network: Midwest, and am so lucky and grateful for the opportunity to give back even a fraction of what it has given me. With The WICT Network in your corner, your opportunities are endless for growth as you move forward in your career.

Be your own catalyst for change. Start your journey with The WICT Network today.
