Tuzon’s had a busy and successful year, spearheading legal challenges against DISH’s Hopper, Aereo and, more recently, blocking FilmOn X LLC from infringing on Fox’s copyrighted content. Those efforts haven’t stopped her from focusing on expanding digital initiatives and content opportunities for the future and mentoring others, especially young women interested in a law career. Not surprising for a problem solver like Tuzon, she finds puzzles and games relaxing. They’re “terrific mental floss; they take just enough of the active mind to allow everything else to kick into cruise control.”

 

Where are the biggest growth areas for women in cable?

More women are entering the workforce and the communications fields with expertise in STEM areas – Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.  This is a huge educational and social focus, and women who combine great interpersonal and management skills with technical expertise can rule the world.

 

What/who inspires you at work? What/who inspires you outside the office?

My team inspires me at work – they are truly the best in the business and I would be disinterested in doing this without them riding shotgun. My parents inspired my belief in the American Dream; Dolores Huerta inspires my commitment to social activism for just causes; and my children inspire me to continue to pursue both.

 

Best trick for maintaining the personal-professional life balance?

Everyone on this list knows that there really is no magical trick–it’s all hard work and there are never enough hours in the day.

 

Your favorite trick for unwinding?

Although I love to read it isn’t relaxing per se because I can never put the book down. Puzzles and games are terrific mental floss; they take just enough of the active mind to allow everything else to kick into cruise control.
