EXTON, Pa. -- The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) today announced a significant step forward in the internationalization of the organization with the appointment of Bill Warga, vice president, technology and a member of the Chief Architecture Group for Liberty Global, to the SCTE Board of Directors.

Warga, a veteran of more than three decades in the broadcasting and cable industries, is responsible for the research and evaluation of new, innovative technologies as they relate to Liberty Global’s business, strategic and operational activities in Europe and the Americas. He will assume his new SCTE role when the 2014-’15 board is seated in September.

Warga will replace Mike LaJoie, executive vice president and CTO of Time Warner Cable, the only appointed SCTE board member whose term expires this year.

“Bill Warga’s expertise and guidance will be invaluable as we increase the scope of SCTE to encompass new products and services, both in the United States and in the international marketplace,” said Terry Cordova, senior vice president and CTO of Suddenlink Communications and chairman of the SCTE Board of Directors. “We’re grateful to him for committing the time and resources needed to advance our industry, and to my predecessor as chairman, Mike LaJoie, for his many contributions to SCTE.”

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
