What do you love about WICT? Part One.

Valentine’s Day is once again upon us. To celebrate in the spirit of the holiday, we asked some of our members to share what they love about WICT. Starting today, through Valentine’s Day, we’ll share what a few of them had to say!

I love the friendships I’ve made and the badass women I’ve met. — Kathy Oakes, Senior Manager of Business Process, Cox

Like Kathy Oakes, I have made a ton of great friends through WICT Southeast. They have provided great networking opportunities and career-building events. Honestly, this is probably one of the top professional organizations that I have ever joined. — Valerie Carrillo, Senior Writer/Producer, Brand Creative, HGTV/DIY Network/GAC, Discovery

I am a member of WICT because I can’t conceive of not being a member. WICT gives me a chance to meet and work with amazing women, generate ideas for continued growth of its members and community, and participate in meaningful events that can be the cornerstone of success and self-accomplishment in the workplace and personally. The telecommunications industry is ever-changing and WICT spreads awareness of these changes. It provides its members with holistic information to be forward-thinking, inspirational, and fearless. — Angela Manring, Corporate Marketing Specialist, Cox Business

WICT is transformational. The more you get involved, the more impact it has on your personal and professional growth. I am one of many people who can say that WICT changed my life, and I am grateful that our industry has such an amazing organization. — Sheri McGaughy, Principal, McGaughy Law

I love the opportunity to network and meet amazing women who have a passion for the cable and telecommunications industry. WICT is an inclusive association, allowing members to share their diverse backgrounds and experiences — helping each other grow in the process. I’ve been a WICT member for more than 25 years and on the board for more than 10. It’s been a joy to participate and to serve! – Kathy Hatala, SVP, National Accounts, Speakeasy
