WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The following statement should be attributed to CTIA-The Wireless Association Vice President of Government Affairs Jot Carpenter: "As home to almost half of the world's LTE subscribers, headquarters for the developers of the world's dominant wireless operating systems and the locus of innovation in the applications market, the United States is at the epicenter of wireless innovation. But this progress – and the tremendous benefits it generates for our economy – is at risk unless wireless carriers, manufacturers and developers can hire enough world-class talent to design the next disruptive service, handset or app. "By investing in STEM education and ensuring that talent trained here can work here, the Immigration Innovation Act will alleviate this problem and help the United States to remain the world's leading wireless market. We thank Senators Hatch, Rubio, Klobuchar and Coons for their leadership and hope that the full Senate will act soon on this important bill." CTIA

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
