Title: Susan Adams
Document type: Oral history
Accessibility: Free Only
Repository: Cable Center. Barco Library. Special Collections
Collection: Cable Center Oral History Collection
Description: Susan Adams helped pioneer the role of women in the cable industry. She was among just a few women to serve in management roles in the operations side of the business. She was among the first graduating class of the Betsy Magness Institute at the Cable Center and served as president of Women in Cable & Telecommunications during its 20th anniversary year. In her oral history, Adams speaks of her experiences, particularly from the point of view of a woman in a traditionally male dominated business. She also recounts the benefits she received from participation in the Betsy Magness Institute and the role of WICT in helping women in the business and in helping the cable industry become more aware of women's issues. Finally, she touches on the need to balance work and family life and tells how she managed to do so: holding down key jobs at Cox Cable and Washington Post Cable while raising three children.
