Along with partnering with marketing, product and other teams throughout the company to continually improve financial and data analysis, Unruh is heavily involved in developing the company’s new, innovative original content strategy. A past participant of the Betsy Magness Leadership Institute, she values Charter’s support of leadership development programs: “I love catching up with recent Betsy Magness participants from Charter and hearing how the program has accelerated their career growth.”
What specifically does your company do to support and elevate the women who work there?
One of the many examples of how Charter supports the growth of women is through its partnership with Women In Cable Telecommunications (WICT). I have had the great opportunity to learn and grow through WICT’s invaluable leadership development programs, including its Rising Leaders Program and Betsy Magness Leadership Institute. I love catching up with recent Betsy Magness participants from Charter and hearing how the program has accelerated their career growth.
What advice would you give your 13-year-old self?
For me, revisiting my thirteen-year-old self is a daily exercise—I see so much of myself in my thirteen-year-old son. My wish for him, and for the thirteen-year-old me, is don’t sweat the small stuff, take risks, and embrace that life is best lived as a great adventure.
Which current shows best reflect the kind of women’s roles you like to see and why?
Although I have different values, I loved watching Keri Russell as a strong woman focused on her mission in “The Americans.” I’m also very proud that Charter’s first Spectrum Originals series, “LA’s Finest,” included impressive women in lead roles both in front of and behind the camera.
