WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Optical Society (OSA) today expressed its condolences at the loss of Tingye Li, an OSA Fellow Emeritus and 1995 OSA president. Li, renowned for his contributions to lightwave technology and optical fiber communications, died Dec. 27, 2012 in Snowbird, Utah. He was 81.
“Tingye was fully engaged in all aspects of his life and OSA was fortunate to have received some of that precious time and focus,” said OSA CEO Elizabeth Rogan. “Not only was he world-class, highly-regarded and effective, but he also offered a story, a lesson, or a playful insight that was there if you were paying attention. He conveyed a sincere level of support, respect, and optimism to his colleagues, students, and OSA staff that we’ll always treasure.”

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.
