Rocky Mountain WICT Leadership Roundtable, Part 4: Looking Ahead
In 2009, the Rocky Mountain chapter of Women in Telecommunications and Cable invited me to moderate a roundtable discussion featuring 10 former “Women of the Year.”
We begin this segment with an excerpt from journalist Margerie Williams’ essay “Thank You Clarence Thomas,” which shines a contemporary spotlight on the word “feminism”. The term bulges with connotations, mostly negative. We discuss whether there’s value in repositioning of the word, and how the future of feminism and women’s rights lies in the ability to partner, not exclude, men. The notion of leadership must also be reevaluated, the participants explain, to include ideas of community.
