Last month, Women in Consumer Technology (WiCT) added Amanda “Mandy” Beckner, CEDIA’s vice president of education and training, and Norma Garcia-Muro, vice president of marketing at Kaleidescape, to its board.
We sat down with Beckner and Garcia-Muro to chat about their recent appointment and their plans for the organization.
LAVNCH [CODE]: What motivated you to join the board of Women in Consumer Technology?
BECKNER: Anyone who’s met Carol Campbell [the organization’s founder] can tell you what a galvanizing force she is. I was reminded of that gift when I observed the Leadership Coaching event in Washington, D.C. in June 2022. Every participant had a strong reason for being there, was fully engaged in the program and supported each other’s growth. This is a dynamic that doesn’t just happen. It’s built on trust and connection and the WiCT leaders are dedicated to valuing and celebrating that dynamic.
GARCIA-MURO: Empowering women within the technology and film industry is a personal mission of mine. I’ve been championing numerous organizations in my career that fit my passions. I would like to see women take on leadership roles so we can help shape the future of innovation and storytelling. As an executive, I feel a personal responsibility to elevate diverse voices and open doors so others can also have a seat at the table.
