Commercial Integrator March 2022 - 20

COVER STORY
EARNING A SEAT
AT THE TABLE
The extraordinary women of commercial AV speak on their successes, their activism
and the continuing push for an inclusive industry.
By Amala Reddie
W
OMEN HAVE LONG BEEN
powerhouse contributors
to the integration industry.
Presently, there are women
at all levels of the industry, including those
working as integrators, marketers, AV consultants,
executive managers and CEOs.
Yet, despite the awe-inspiring accomplishments
of women in our industry, there's so
much more that we can contribute. Too
many women - especially women of color
- still miss out on various opportunities.
The push for diversity and equal representation
has been ongoing for decades.
Organizations such as AVIXA Women's
20
Council, Women in Tech, Women in AV and
others continuously work to provide a platform
and amplify voices that are too easily
marginalized in a male-dominated industry.
Today, however, it's about more than
just having a platform. Women are looking
for a seat at the table...a seat from which
their professional achievements can be
seen and heard.
In this three-part series, whose beginning
aligns with International Women's Day on
March 8, Commercial Integrator will spotlight
leading women in AV; at the same time,
highlight some of the underlying issues and
challenges prevalent in the commercial AV
Commercial Integrator MARCH 2022
industry. This month, in the fi rst part of this
series, we'll focus on the triumphs, the activism
and the indomitable spirits of several
powerful women in our industry.
Commercial Integrator speaks to Audinate's
Alesia Hendley (also a multimedia
journalist), AtlasIED's Gina Sansivero, former
AVIXA Women's Council chair Brandy Alvarado-Miranda
and Verrex's Charmaine Torruella
(also founding AVIXA Diversity Council
Chair). Expounding on their journeys and
perspectives, these women illuminate the
road ahead, illustrating how we can improve
diversity, equity and inclusion across the
commercial AV industry.
