NSCA UNVEILS WOMEN IN INDUSTRY INITIATIVE

Jeanne Stiernberg (at far left) of Sherman Oaks, CA-based Stiernberg Consulting noted afterwards that “For this industry to thrive it needs to attract constituents from many walks of life. Women have played key roles here for years, and this event is a good reminder of that.?Events promote networking and outreach

CEDAR RAPIDS, IA, July 9, 2008 — Recently retired NSCA President Nancy Emerson told more than 30 attendees at a reception for women during InfoComm 08 that opportunities abound for them in the commercial electronic systems industry.

“We often don’t put a female face on the industry,? Emerson said. “There are many opportunities for women – whether that’s pulling cable, doing project management, serving as sales reps or becoming engineers. We’re trying to bring some diversity to the field.?

In what she hoped would be the first of many such events, Emerson wanted the reception to generate interest and increase networking channels for women. Plans are in the works for a similar event during NSCA TechWeek, sponsored by InfoComm, October 20 – 24, in Dallas, Texas.

In conjunction with the initiative, NSCA plans to launch a listserv to promote discussion and a free exchange of information. The association encourages everyone in the industry to get involved and reach out to new women in the field.
