Our annual fundraiser, WICT Philly Gives Back, will take place on Tuesday, November 7, 2017 at Hyatt at the The Bellevue. Registration is forthcoming. WICT Philly Gives Back (WPGB), raises funds for our own chapter’s scholarships as well as for Girls Inc. by holding an elegant dinner with a silent auction of donated items from our WICT Sponsors.

WPGB is also an opportunity for the chapter to recognize outstanding women in the cable industry who are making a difference and paving the way for future women leaders during our Leadership Award ceremony that takes place at the event. Award nominations are now being accepted. We will be recognizing four amazing women with Catalyst, Educator, Inspire & Communicator Awards.
