Chicago-Women in Cable & Telecommunications said last week that it is seeking applicants for the 2000-2001 Betsy Magness Leadership Institute.

The program includes a weeklong workshop in October, as well as three separate one-day events next year.

The leadership institute selects women in the telecommunications industry who have already displayed leadership skills and demonstrated the potential to mentor those inside the industry and their communities, WICT said in a press release.
