Charytan juggles multiple tasks at Comcast and Comcast Cable with considerably more intellect and aplomb than her favorite female TV character, Selina Meyer of “Veep.” She oversees the full range of legal affairs of Comcast Cable and, on the corporate side, also manages all regulatory compliance with the NBCUniversal transaction requirements. A passionate advocate for equality in the legal and cable fields, Charytan believes promoting from within can aid in leveling the field. “There are so many great women waiting for their moment in the sun—give them a chance, take a chance on them, and then support them,” she says.

Who is your favorite current female TV character and why?
Selina Meyer, in “Veep”—because she is a shameless tough cookie and because she makes me laugh, always.

What is one way the industry can continue to evolve in ridding itself of gender discrimination?
Promote from within—there are so many great women waiting for their moment in the sun—give them a chance, take a chance on them, and then support them.

Best advice for relieving stress?
Deep breathing, with a glass of wine and my labradoodle—nothing beats that combo.
