Unapologetic Women Win Meetings in Jeans

Sunday, March 13
5:00PM - 6:00PM

JW Marriott
Salon 7
110 E 2nd St


Ever been in a meeting where the women are in suits and the men jeans? It happens in advertising & digital regularly. In this session three women and one man with leadership positions in advertising and digital, discuss their journeys. From something as seemingly trivial as meeting attire, to bigger issues like losing ground during maternity leave, this conversation offers solutions for success in industries that have yet to fully embrace gender equality. Perspectives on visible tattoos, required pantyhose, making dinnertime a "business-free" zone, and "can-the-client-hear-SpongeBob-in-the-background-of-this-conference-call-on-my-kiddo's-sick-day?" are offered from people who've been there.
