Dress with Grace: Help sort the donations and create a boutique for Dress with Grace, a bi-annual clothing drive for work-appropriate attire. Or lead a team at your company to solicit donations (details to come in Spring 2019).
This is a great way to share your experiences with a very deserving group of hard working women!

- Spend a high energy morning in April learning the arts of self-confidence and bragging. Often compared to an executive coaching session, this workshop leverages the talents of communications guru and author Peggy Klaus as she leads participants in strategies and techniques for communicating their worth. WICT NY Volunteers are paired with high school juniors who are preparing for college interviews. At the end of the workshop, you will be more than a little impressed with yourself and the students.

The Mentoring Circle is a group mentoring program for junior women starting out in the cable industry. Critical topics that impact leadership success and long-term development based on the WICT Touchstones of Leadership are explored in an open forum of peer mentees and mentors. Each session is led by two Mentors who are graduates of WICT NY’s Prime Access program.
Prime Access is a one to one mentoring opportunity between WICT members at the Director level and very senior executives in the cable telecom industry. Prime Access Committee members are responsible for selecting the program’s Mentees, recruiting and getting to know potential Mentors, determining the program year’s curriculum, and planning workshops and social events.
The Programming Committee is responsible for planning and producing WICT NY’s educational events including The Executive Leadership Series, Let’s Talk Tuesdays, Skills to Succeed, Tech It Out, Virtual Events and more.
