Dickson has brought all of the skills she honed at Time Warner Cable Media to her new role at Charter. Integrating three companies into one required unifying platforms, systems and processes, resulting in a combined operations team. Her team’s next step is expanding inventory optimization. Dickson’s tip for reducing stress is simply to let people help. “This may sound like ‘delegate’ but actually it’s different,” she says. “We often have people surrounding us who would love to help relieve some of the stress in our lives… Learn to let go and allow people to make our life easier.”
What is one way the industry can continue to evolve in ridding itself of gender discrimination?
I firmly believe we have to start earlier. Girls start stepping back from STEM courses around the time of Middle School. As an industry we need to help keep them engaged during this critical turning point so they can continue on into High School and College pursuing an industry focused on technology.
Best advice for relieving stress?
Let people help. This may sound like ‘delegate’ but actually it’s different. We often have people surrounding us who would love to help relieve some of the stress in our lives–they watch us from the sidelines and don’t know how they can be supportive. Learn to let go and allow people to make our life easier.
