Every other year, WICT conducts the PAR Initiative survey, which measures the status of women employees in the cable industry based on three criteria:


  • Pay Equity
  • Advancement Opportunities
  • Resources for Work/Life Integration

In the non-survey year, data from the survey is used to create tools and resources, including the PAR at Work webinars, which help WICT members, apply lessons from the PAR Initiative to their own companies and careers.


The 2016 PAR at Work webinars will delve deeper into the results of the 2015 PAR Survey to serve as the starting point for rich career and workplace discussions among WICT members.
