Women of NATE (WON) representatives recently met with FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr and Policy Advisor Evan Swartztrauber at the agency’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. to exchange views on key industry topics.
They discussed broadening nationwide telecom career path opportunities, workforce development and training as well as opportunities and growth for women in technology. The WON gave Carr first-hand accounts of women in the telecommunications industry. “Safety was at the forefront of all topics throughout the discussion,” stated WON Chairwoman Andy Lee. Miranda Allen, Women of NATE member, added: “Ultimately, WON wants to provide women equal access, embrace opportunities, and come home safely at the end of the day.”
“It was an honor to meet with Commissioner Carr to discuss Women of NATE programs, initiatives, and opportunities,” added Lee. “We appreciate the leadership role Commissioner Carr is holding at the FCC to streamline wireless infrastructure deployments, promote the expansion of rural broadband and support workforce development initiatives.”
