WICT Sends Out PAR Survey


The Women in Cable & Telecommunications Foundation said Wednesday that the 2005 PAR Initiative survey has been distributed to cable operators and programmers throughout the United States.

The survey -- conducted in partnership with Working Mother Media -- measures the advancement of women in the cable and telecommunications industries as defined by progress in the areas of pay equity, advancement opportunities and resources for work/life support.

Responses are due May 27.

Based on results from the 2004 PAR Initiative, Cox Communications Inc. was the 2004 recipient of the “Forerunner Accolade” for the best operator for women in cable, while Discovery Communications Inc. took home honors for the best programmer.
