This driven exec inspires her team to do their best in every endeavor, so it makes sense that she serves on the “What’s On Your Mind” group, a forum to share workplace challenges. “The most important thing that cable can do to support women is to allow them the opportunities to do the best they can through providing flexibility,” she says.
How can cable do better job at supporting the industry’s women?
The most important thing that cable can do to support women is to allow them the opportunities to do the best they can through providing flexibility. This flexibility includes being exposed to different positions and paths as well as the ability to potentially exit and re-enter the workforce as needed. We need to accommodate the best and the brightest by valuing their work, and giving them access to the specific tools they need to succeed as well as providing sponsors and mentors who make it a priority to help navigate the myriad bumps and stresses as well as successes in their careers.
How do you define a successful career?
A successful career means that you have brought new perspectives to your business and co-workers, made a difference in the work that you do, helped develop talent and created opportunities for those that come after you. It means that your colleagues would be sorry to see you leave, since they would miss the advice, integrity and partnership they rely on. It means people like to work for you and do business with you since you make it fun to sort the puzzles. Additionally, it means really knowing where you are personally needed at any point in time and being there; so that at the end of the day, your family is still happy to see you when you make it home!
When not in the office, where are we most likely to find you?
When not in the office, you would likely find me in my kitchen, enjoying some wine while cooking fantastic food alongside videos of my favorite Food Network talent and surrounded by family and friends.
