It’s Valentine’s Day! To celebrate in the spirit of the holiday, we asked some of our members to share what they love about WICT. We started sharing quotes on February 12th and today is the final day. See below to see what a few of them had to say!
I first joined WICT in 2007 and have served on a WICT Board of Directors since 2012. My engagement in WICT has helped me strengthen a variety of professional skills, specifically people management and leadership. I’ve been inspired to pursue new challenges and utilize my strengths to make a positive impact in the industry and community. — LaShaun Solomon, 2019 WICT Southeast President & Comcast – Xfinity Communities Sales
What I love the most about WICT is how it has given me exposure and access to opportunities that I may not have received otherwise, including professional development courses, webinars, and networking events. Within this international network, peers and colleagues have given me invaluable advice, much of which has allowed me to overcome numerous career obstacles. — Daphne Ternoir, Image Administrator, Discovery
SCTE was a great way for me to understand cable beyond my role in advertising. I thoroughly enjoyed being able to see all the pieces of our huge web of cable — from installation supplies to diversity recruitment efforts, SCTE had it all! I enjoyed the speakers, including those from Comcast! Thanks WICT for providing this great opportunity full of learning and networking. — Sequoyah A. Glenn, MBA, Advertising Research Analyst, 2, Comcast Spotlight
There are three things I love most about WICT: being inspired by the stories of other successful women; picking up professional development “tips and tricks” from the great programming; and meeting incredible women (and men) across the industry whose paths I’d likely never cross without WICT. — Marsha Maldonado, Business Improvement Executive Lead, Turner, & WICT Southeast Director, Partnerships
