Diversity & Inclusion

SCTE•ISBE's long-term goal is to ensure that our membership, volunteer membership, and staff represent a strong and evolving model of diversity and inclusion for the technical operations and engineering workforce of the Broadband Industry, and those that support them.

Diversity Initiatives

In early 2012 SCTE•ISBE began its launch of the SCTE•ISBE Diversity & Inclusion Initiative through the creation of several programs supporting its Inclusion Philosophy. Multi-channel News worked with SCTE•ISBE Senior Vice President of Operations, Cathy Oakes, in posting an article that highlights key areas of focus for SCTE•ISBE Diversity & Inclusion in the year ahead.
