Meet our Faces of The WICT Network
Laila Imam: Senior Program Manager at Comcast
What do you love most about your job?
I love the people I work with the most. Over the years, I have worked with so many hardworking, intelligent and dedicated professionals. Without them I wouldn’t be able to successfully deliver my projects. I have built great relationships, which helped me bring our teams together through collaboration and to align on common goals of my organization.
How have other women helped shape your career?
Starting from my college years I have met many accomplished women who shared their knowledge, wisdom and have been inspirational mentors to me throughout my career. Women who raised each other up and challenged each other through power of collaboration are truly the ones who helped boost my confidence and impacted my career in a positive way. I learned that women who support one another are far more successful in business.
Outside of work, what’s something you are passionate about?
I am a mother of two boys who are both into sports. My husband and I spend a lot of time at the hockey rinks and soccer stadiums, cheering for our boys. I love to travel and explore new places with my family. I am also very much into fitness and work out every day to stay fit and healthy for me and my family.
What do you value most about your membership with The WICT Network?
WICT community gives me the opportunity to connect with amazing women in the industry and beyond. I am learning a lot through the great events WICT offers and the networking opportunities are priceless. WICT provides an incredible platform to grow as a leader, to give back and to inspire other women in the industry.
