Celebrating Women on Video’s Cutting Edge

The editors of Multichannel News are proud to introduce the inaugural Wonder Women in Streaming, a group of 12 influential executives set to be honored at a gala breakfast gathering on Thursday, Sept. 5, in Santa Monica, California.

An extension of the magazine’s 22-year tradition of selecting and saluting Wonder Women in the cable and telecommunications industry, the inaugural Wonder Women in Streaming event will highlight women playing important leadership roles in the growing realm of streamed video.

The event will be held at the Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel, ahead of the OTT & Video Distribution Summit that same day.

Also to be honored at the breakfast event are 12 Women to Watch, selected for contributions to the advancement of video streaming that are emblematic of the vital roles they’re likely to play in the content industry’s ongoing transformation.
