Welcome Arizona DWN Chapter!

This month, we want to give a warm welcome to our Arizona DISH Women’s Network chapter. This chapter is headed by Vanessa Dunham and has 25 founding members. Here is my interview with Vanessa:

How do you intend to use the DWN platform to build up women in the AZ office?

My desire to be a part of empowering women by mentoring opportunities, education and training, encouragements and finding resources to help us all succeed prompted me to initiate the DWN chapter in Arizona. I’m fortunate enough to find a like-minded woman named Melissa Boillot, Human Resources Manager at the Phoenix Call Center, who has the same passion for making a difference to others.

Cover the Game, Close the Gap.

Last night was not only a win for the Denver Broncos, but a win for all women in getting one step closer to gender equality. Beth Mowins now holds the title as the first woman to call a nationally-televised NFL game, as she covered the Broncos defeat of the LA Chargers at Sports Authority field last night.

At ESPN, Beth began her history-making journey calling college games- only the second woman to do so for the network. Beth’s coverage of the game generated support by Broncos players, and the NFL on social media, bringing well-deserved attention to history in the making.

Catch Beth covering CBS games throughout the season, including the upcoming September 24th Browns vs. Colts game.
