Women in Cable Telecommunications (WICT) today announced that applications for the Betsy Magness Leadership Institute Classes XXII & XXIII are now being accepted through May 21.

Named in honor of Betsy Magness, one of the industry's most successful pioneers, The Betsy Magness Leadership Institute, or BMLI, is sponsored by WE tv. The leadership development program is geared toward training senior-level women in the cable telecommunications industry.

Those accepted into the program are immersed in an educational journey that focuses on core leadership competencies, including honing effective negotiation skills, building and leading productive teams, navigating and embracing change, communicating and executing organizational vision, and many other topics.

More than 530 women have graduated from BMLI and continue to be actively engaged in transforming their companies and our industry at the highest levels, with many alumnae collegially referring to themselves as "Betsies."

Laurie Root, vice president of WICT education and program development, said, "The Betsy Magness Leadership Institute is WICT's flagship professional development opportunity for senior-level women and is one of the industry's most sought-after seats."
