MAY 27, 2014 (Exton, PA) — Nominations are now being accepted for the 2014 Women in Technology Award, the prestigious honor that is jointly presented by Women in Cable Telecommunications (WICT), the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE), and Cablefax. The nominations deadline is Friday, June 27, 2014.


Sponsored by Bright House Networks, the award was created in 1995 to acknowledge the achievements of an outstanding woman in technology who has demonstrated significant personal and professional growth and has contributed to the advancement of the cable telecommunications industry. The award is designed to shine a spotlight on the achievements of women inside this traditionally male-dominated industry sector. A nominee must be in a technical position in the cable or telecommunications industry and must be a current member of WICT and SCTE, among other criteria detailed in the nomination application.


This year's award will be presented during SCTE's Annual Awards Luncheon at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo® 2014, to be held Monday through Thursday, Sept. 22-25, 2014, in Denver.


Last year's Award winner was Stephanie Mitchko-Beale. Past recipients of the Women in Technology Award include: Jennifer Yohe Wagner, Susan Adams, Leslie Ellis, Barbara Jaffe, Cyndee Everman, Carolyn Terry, Vicki Marts, Charlotte Field, and Nomi Bergman.
