Bergman is well regarded in tech circles. So much so that WICT decided to name a new fellowship after her. The Nomi M. Bergman Fellowship is designed to support career development for high potential women working for technology suppliers. The former Bright House president says the industry has shown meaningful progress in including women “in positive images in our content and in leader- ship roles with the companies.” According to Bergman, studies show companies with more women in upper management achieve higher profits. “Undoubtedly, our industry would benefit by treating gender diversity like the business imperative it is,” she says. Visteon, a manufacturer of cockpit electronics and connected car products, clearly agrees. Bergman was recently elected to the company’s Board.
