Sarah Gitchell

Gitchell is inspired by the Supremes’ Ruth Bader Ginsburg, noting, “Not only has she achieved incredible accomplishments that we all benefit from, but how could I not be inspired by an octogenarian that can do more push-ups than me?” At Comcast Cable, she does plenty of heavy lifting—leading the legal team that supports the company’s content licensing arrangements, including retrans and a range of new media deals. She also serves as the lead attorney for the Content Acquisition group, which licenses billions of dollars of content each year, and is an active member of Comcast’s Women’s Network, an employee resource group.

Who is an inspirational woman you admire, and why?
I am inspired by the notorious Ruth Bader Ginsburg—not only has she achieved incredible accomplishments that we all benefit from (eg, gender equality), but how could I not be inspired by an octogenarian that can do more push-ups than me?
