November’s featured woman of the month is our own Sruta Vootukuru, Sling TV’s Vice President of Business Development and Operations, who was just named as one of Cablefax’s Most Powerful Women! We had the honor of having Sruta speak at our Leader Series back in August, and we sat down with her again to congratulate her on her awe-inspiring accomplishment and gather more insight as to what makes her one of the most powerful women in the TV industry.
1. Congratulations on being named to CableFax’s “Most Powerful Women in Cable”! What do you attribute to this achievement?
I take nothing for granted. I approach all professional obstacles realistically, strategically, and tirelessly, but I’m not deterred by the failures in the process.
2. If you could give one piece of career advice to women, what would it be?
Be “you” and stay authentic to what makes you unique. Do it right by the business and by the team, and everything else takes care of itself!
3. What motivates you to come to work every day?
My team, the promise of what this business can be tomorrow, and the opportunity to be part of it and contribute to shaping it!!
4. What’s your biggest accomplishment thus far?
My kids, undoubtedly.
