SCTE Invites Applications From Women For Leadership Scholarship

The SCTE Foundation today is now accepting applications for its Catherine Oakes Memorial Leadership Scholarship for Women award, which can count towards attendance at the Women in Cable Telecommunication (WICT) EDS: Executive Leadership Presence workshop to be held later in 2020.

The workshop, part of WICT’s Executive Development Series, is designed to help mid-career cable professionals develop leadership presence to inspire confidence, engage and influence others, while staying productive and visible. The two-day program will introduce participants to a framework and toolkit of 21 specific attributes, skills and thought processes that combine to build relevant knowledge and skills. These include ability to project a strong executive presence; create powerful, high-impact first impressions; achieve a “Confident Casual” style in both formal presentations and impromptu communications; and sustain a reputation for strong executive presence with a value-based leadership brand.

The SCTE Foundation’s $3,500 scholarship is open to all women who are SCTE•ISBE members. The funds are intended to defray the cost of the workshop, as well as a portion of the winner’s travel and housing costs. The workshop is scheduled for Sept. 30–Oct. 1 at the Rancho Bernardo Inn in San Diego.
