Since 2003, the WICT PAR Initiative has measured the status of women employees in the cable industry based on three main criteria: 

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

A comprehensive advocacy program helping companies to set goals, institutionalize policies, measure progress and achieve results, the PAR Initiative showcases best practices in achieving stronger gender diversity. With a goal to improve diversity metrics for women, the PAR Initiative is supported by all of WICT's local chapters and underwritten by the Walter Kaitz Foundation.


In 2015 WICT and NAMIC are conducting a joint workplace diversity survey for the next editions of the WICT PAR Initiative and the NAMIC AIM (Advancement Investment Measurement).


The survey is now closed. Overall findings will be unveiled by WICT and NAMIC in a Town Hall meeting on September 28, 2015 during Cable Diversity Week.


As part of Mercer’s confidential diversity scorecard, each survey participant will receive customized representation benchmarks reflecting the demographics of the key labor markets in which you operate. In addition, Mercer will provide an Internal Labor Market (ILM) map showing the flow of women and people of color throughout your organization and projections of how the diversity make-up at management levels can be expected to change over the next five years. And new in 2015, Mercer representatives will be available post-survey for 60-minute private review sessions to explain findings from your confidential scorecard.
