Our Story

Our History

Founded in 1979, Cable started with a simple, yet powerful idea: networking between women. The original organizing committee recognized that a women’s civic group would allow members to make business and social contacts, share their professional success and frustrations, and—most importantly—support women in the local business community.

Why Cable

The original members chose the name because it suggests the strength of the links between women—and they were right. Since its inception, Cable has created a space where women business owners and professionals can make connections, build long-lasting relationships, promote opportunities, and develop and maintain a standard of inclusivity and diversity.
