Maria Brennan

This year, under Brennan’s leadership, WICT developed and implemented a forward- thinking strategic plan to help the organization evolve with the ever-changing industry. She’s vocal about the power gender diversity—as well as diversity in general—can bring to any business, but especially to the cable industry. Brennan also welcomed a new Pittsburgh chapter, WICT’s twenty-first, earlier this year. “Fortunately today, and in large part thanks to cable programming, there are too many favorite female characters to name them all,” she says. “I appreciate women’s roles that are multi-faceted—a reflection of the full range of women in society.”
