Women in AV/IT (WAVIT), a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting and empowering women in the AV and IT industries, announces it has added digital signage veteran Carrie Garcia to its board of directors.
“We’re lucky to have Carrie as the newest addition to the WAVIT board,” says Gina Sansivero, WAVIT president and vice president of marketing and communications at AtlasIED. “Carrie has been known as an industry cheerleader for years — particularly when it comes to celebrating women in the digital signage industry. Her enthusiasm is contagious and we’re looking forward to her assisting in our mission to enrich, educate, inspire, and empower the next generation of women.”
Garcia began her career on the IT side of the industry, working for major corporations like AT&T and Comcast. From there, she crossed over into the world of ProAV and became a passionate digital signage advocate. Currently, Garcia serves as the United States business development manager for YCD Multimedia.
“I’m so excited to join the WAVIT board and work with a community of like-minded women,” states Garcia. “It’s our obligation to give back and help the current and next generation of women in the industry. My goal is to leave ProAV better than I found it and joining the WAVIT board will empower me to complete this mission.”
