Clear-Com®, a global leader in voice communications systems, was a first-time sponsor of the popular annual AVIXA Women’s Council Breakfast at the InfoComm 2022 trade show. A long-time supporter of Rise, a group promoting gender diversity within the Broadcast and media technology industry, Clear-Com is now adding their support to the AVIXA Women’s Council, focused on supporting women in the professional AV industry.
“We have always supported raising the profile of women in the industries we serve, and we were pleased to be part of the AVIXA Women’s Council Breakfast this year,” remarks Clear-Com CEO Mitzi Dominguez. “Attracting, supporting and retaining more women in Pro AV opens opportunities for the next generations.”
Clear-Com’s recent involvement with Rise includes corporate sponsorship as well as active, hands-on involvement in the Rise Up Academy, Rise Up Summer School and Rise Awards. The Rise Global Mentorship program currently is working with 98 mentees around the world, all of them matched with a Mentor from the industry.
“We are thrilled about the new opportunity Rise has created to bring value to young people through an immersive and hands on summer program,” says Nicki Fisher, Director of EMEA Sales. “Working closely with our youth allows us to help shape the future of our industry.”
At this year’s AVIXA Women’s Council Breakfast the attendees were delighted by keynote speaker Melanie Spring. Melanie challenged the attendees to dig deep with her engaging ice breakers to foster tools to speak authentically and confidently and to light the fire within.
Clear-Com’s Arcadia® Central Station was recognized by MIX/PSN winning the award for Best of Show InfoComm 2022.
