Women in Cable Telecommunications (WICT), the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) and CT Reports sister publication Communications Technology magazine have opened the window for nominations for the prestigious 2010 “Women in Technology Award.”
Deadline for submissions is Thursday, May 27. Past recipients include Cyndee Everman, Carolyn Terry, Vicki Marts, Charlotte Field, Nomi Bergman, Marcie Anderson, Christy Martin, Sabrina Calhoun, Margaret Gaillard, Sally Kinsman, Sheri Sharp, Yvette Gordon-Kanouff, Pam Nobles and Pam Arment.
The award, sponsored by Bright House Networks, was created in 1995 to acknowledge the achievements of an outstanding woman in technology who has demonstrated significant personal and professional growth and who has contributed to the advancement of the cable telecommunications industry.
The award is designed to shine a spotlight on the achievements of women inside this traditionally male-dominated industry sector. To be eligible, a woman must be in a technical position in the cable or telecommunications industry; and be a current member of WICT and SCTE, among other criteria detailed in the nomination application.
The 2009 honoree, Barbara Jaffe, HBO’s senior vice president of advanced technology and operations, has been invited to present the award to the 2010 award recipient during SCTE’s Annual Awards Luncheon on Wednesday, Oct. 20 at the SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2010 in New Orleans. The winner also will be featured in an upcoming cover story in Communications Technology magazine.
