Nominations are now being accepted for the 2018 Women in Technology Award, jointly presented by Women in Cable Telecommunications (WICT), the SCTE/ISBE and Cablefax. The nominations deadline is July 9.

The award, created in 1995, acknowledges 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 shines a spotlight on the achievements of women in a traditionally male-dominated industry sector.

A nominee must be in a technical position in the cable or telecommunications industry and must be a member of WICT and the SCTE/ISBE, among other criteria detailed in the nomination application.

This year's award will be presented during the SCTE/ISBE's Annual Awards Luncheon at Cable-Tec Expo 2018 in Atlanta.

Last year's winner was Deborah Picciolo of Charter Communications. Some other past recipients include Theresa Hennesy, Vibha Rustagi, Sherita Ceasar, Stephanie Mitchko-Beale, Jennifer Yohe Wagner, Susan Adams, Leslie Ellis, Barbara Jaffe, Cyndee Everman, Carolyn Terry, Vicki Marts, Charlotte Field, Nomi Bergman and Yvette Kanouff.

More information - including the complete list of winners - and the online nomination application are available at www.wict.org in the Career Development section.
