The SCTE Foundation is accepting applications for a Catherine Oakes Memorial Leadership Scholarship for Women award to be used toward attendance at the Women in Cable Telecommunication (WICT) EDS: Executive Leadership Presence workshop to be held later this year.
The workshop, part of WICT's Executive Development Series, is designed to help mid-career cable professionals to develop leadership presence as a means to inspire confidence, engage and influence others, and maintain productivity while increasing visibility and career mobility. The two-day program will introduce participants to a framework and toolkit of 21 specific attributes, skills and thought processes that work together to help them build the knowledge and skills needed 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 build and maintain a reputation for strong executive presence and 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 in San Diego.
Scholarship applications are due May 29. More information and application materials are available at https://foundation.scte.org/Foundation/Advantage/OakesMemorialScholarship/.
