Chief of Staff, WICT
A 16-year veteran of WICT, Das this year oversaw the implementation of the organization’s first international chapter, located in the U.K. She leads the PAR Initiative efforts with NAMIC and is responsible for relocating WICT’s HQ from Chantilly, VA—no small task, as it requires updates to long-standing practices. But we have a feeling she’ll excel, as she does in other operational matters. “I have always liked putting the pieces of a puzzle together and figuring out how everything works,” she says.
What’s your favorite part of your job?
I have always liked putting the pieces of a puzzle together and figuring out how everything works. In my operational role at WICT, I get to look at the organization as a whole. Since I see how everything intertwines, I have the opportunity to help build stronger products and create better efficiencies. And that excites me, as well as working with my colleagues and interacting with our membership.
How do you define success in the workplace?
Success is doing what you love. I’m fortunate that in my role, I can combine both of my passions—working with the cable industry leaders and striving to make a difference for others.
Who would you want to swap jobs with for a month and why?
I would love to be a television producer. When I was in high school, I went to a location shoot for General Hospital and thought it would be so cool to coordinate the actors, sets and production altogether.
