The 19th annual Wonder Women celebration, honoring female executives at the forefront of cable television and communications, will be held at The New York Hilton Midtown on March 23, 2017.
The gala luncheon, co-hosted by the New York chapter of Women in Cable Telecommunications and featuring prominent TV personalities as presenters, has honored more than 200 women over the years, highlighting their accomplishments in the workplace and beyond. All honorees have paved the way for younger generations of women in a multi-faceted career sector.


This year’s Wonder Women class will speak about how they have excelled in their careers, the mentors and family members who’ve helped them and the value they place on helping others to achieve success, as well.
Congratulations to the Class of 2017!
