WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The OSA Foundation (OSAF) today announced the successful completion of the Paul A. Bonenfant Memorial Scholarship fundraising campaign, surpassing the total fundraising goal of $190,000. The need-based scholarship will enable undergraduate students enrolled in engineering or physical science programs to attend semester-abroad programs offered through their college or university. Established in 2011, the scholarship honors the late optical communications expert and Morgan Keegan analyst Paul Bonenfant, a dedicated member of the technical program committee for the Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exposition/National Fiber Optic Engineers Conference (OFC/NFOEC) and speaker at OFC/NFOEC for many years. Bonenfant spent his career in various capacities from engineering to investment banking, and recognized the critical need for international experiences to promote global engagement and collaboration and expand an individual’s total worldview. The fundraising campaign was bolstered by an anonymous donor who matched donations up to $62,000, as well as a series of 5K runs organized by Kelly Skelton, son of Lightwave magazine staffer Kathleen Skelton, along with telecom marketing agency Pacific Bridge Marketing and OSA Foundation staff.

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.
