Nominate the Most Powerful Women

Every year, Cablefax recognizes the Most Powerful Women based on their influence and power within the industry—as well as their commitment to ensuring other execs receive opportunities to grow and flourish. The Most Powerful Women magazine recognizes women across departments including advertising, communications, corporate culture, sales, content, consultants, distribution, digital, finance, legal, operations and more. Help us celebrate the women who are a beacon in a storm. Until Friday, August 12, each organization can submit three entries for free. After August 12, separate rates apply (see below). 

Cablefax is also seeking nominations for a number of individual and organization awards, including Mentor of the Year and recognizing The Rising Tide of women to watch.

Nomination Questions

  • Please share 2-3 specific accomplishments and milestones achieved by this person in the last 12 months.

  • How do they exhibit leadership within the organization beyond their day-to-day role?

  • How has this person championed other women in the industry and/or their community? 

  • What is their X Factor?

The nomination deadline is Friday, August 12 so please don’t delay. We look forward to your entries!

The Rising Tide & their Sponsors

In addition to spotlighting the industry’s biggest leaders, Cablefax is promoting the power of one-to-one relationships. This year, we are looking for executives to sponsor a candidate to be included in The Rising Tide.

These are the women whose hard work already makes it clear that they are on the path to making big waves in the future as they seek out mentors, push forward new business strategies and demonstrate boldness and creativity in their professional endeavors. To promote the surfacing of this emerging level of luminaries, we are looking to you – those already in senior positions – to put forth the names of the people they believe will populate the next class of Most Powerful Women. 

The Rising Tide will be featured along with their sponsor in a special section of the Most Powerful Women edition of Cablefax: The Magazine, as well as during our celebratory luncheon on Dec. 8 in New York.  

*The Rising Tide does not have age parameters. Sponsors can be any gender.

Individual Categories

    • Mentor of the Year

    • Women’s Advancement Champion

      A female executive whose contributions to the advancement of women within her company has made an important impact within the cable & broadband industry and inspired others to step up their games.
