Since the breakup of AT&T, strong women have found success within the telecommunications industry. Many of members of the first large influx of women to graduate and law schools filled the ranks of regulatory experts needed to guide telecom through its critical transition to competition. Then, with the next wave of creativity driving the dot.com era and now broadband, women are using their abilities to understand customers, multitask and find out of the box solutions to lead. This panel of past/present and future women leaders will discuss how they did it and offer their lessons in leadership.
