Testimonials

 

The WICT Mentoring Program is a life-changing experience.  I have learned so much about managing changes and taking ownership for my career development.  It is an outstanding environment to practice new skills and learn from others in the industry.  I should have done this years ago; but, I found it is never too late to participate!
Missy Moorhead, Comcast Corporation
I truly believe the WICT organization provides incredible networking opportunities for both men and woman in the Rocky Mountain area.  The events bring a mixture of new technology and basic cable knowledge to its members.
John Roy, Comcast Cable
The WICT Rocky Mountain chapter serves as a career bolstering platform by offering unique networking and educational opportunities.  The WICT Mentoring program, geared towards professional development and individual growth, provides participants with access to Industry Leaders who can provide insight and guidance related to career planning, strategic decision making and short-term and long-term goal setting.  The program also promotes collaboration and knowledge sharing by hosting events such as Tech It Out which focuses primarily on industry trends and the latest technological advancements.
Michelle Johnson, Comcast
The WICT mentoring program has been extremely valuable to me. I have had the opportunity to be mentored by an executive in the industry who has provided valuable advice on my career and has helped push me to accomplish things outside my comfort zone. It has also been a great experience to meet other women in the industry and receive additional training from industry experts.
