The NATIONAL CABLE & TELECOMMUNICATIONS ASSOCIATION (NCTA) will be the Title Sponsor of the 2012 ALLIANCE FOR WOMEN IN MEDIA FOUNDATION (AWMF) Symposia Series. This in-depth media series will call attention throughout the year to critical issues that continue to affect women in media.
"The ALLIANCE FOR WOMEN IN MEDIA is a key player in developing networking, professional development, and personal growth opportunities for women across all media," NCTA VP/Online Strategy CHRISTINA ANDERSON said. "Professional development and lifelong learning are critically important to women cable executives, as they are to all women in media. That’s why we at NCTA strongly support this Symposia series and its focus on diversity, career advancement, and financial literacy."
The AWMF SYMPOSIA SERIES kicks off MARCH 29th with the Symposium on Diversity: Defining Different in a Changing Society in WASHINGTON, D.C. The event will take place at DISCOVERY COMMUNICATIONS headquarters, where panelists discuss strategies of women who have created successful media careers, generational diversity, and how to develop and promote your professional brand.
"THE ALLIANCE FOR WOMEN IN MEDIA FOUNDATION appreciates NCTA’s support of our 2012 Symposia Series, as well as its consistent investment in and promotion of AWMF programs and initiatives," AWMF Pres. ERIN M. FULLER said. "Through events such as these Symposia, AWMF brings women in media together to empower career development, engage in thought leadership and drive positive change for our industry."
