Those working in cable need to realize that supporting the industry’s women in a male-dominated industry is a culture change, and culture change takes time, says Nobles: “Many may not realize how unsupportive their beliefs and actions come across.” Nobles has extended SCTE training to community colleges and trade schools, using SCTE’s Broadband Premises Installation and Service guidebook as the textbook for a broadband cable class. A published author in various cable trades, she is decidedly passionate about technical training and operations.

How can cable do better job at supporting the industry’s women?

Realize that supporting the industry’s women in a male-dominated industry is a culture change, and culture change takes time.  Many may not realize how unsupportive their beliefs and actions come across.  Support may take the form of small steps, for example, seeking to understand how the thinking of men and women in the workplace differs.

Best trick for maintaining the personal-professional life balance?

The “trick” I have learned is realizing I can’t have it all, even if I want to!  There are suffices that are necessary during different seasons of our lives.

When not in the office, where are we most likely to find you?

During this season of my life, you will probably find me driving my daughter to/from the train station.  (She is a student at Drexel University, studying environmental engineering).
