Brand Innovators is honoring the most innovative women in brand marketing.

When will we stop hosting events for women in brand marketing? When will we stop singling women out and instead call them people in brand marketing? That’s easy: just as soon as we see 100% gender equality in the workplace. Meantime, please join us for our seventh (and, we hope, last) annual Women in Brand Marketing Summit during Advertising Week in New York.

We’ll go beyond the surface to discuss how women and men can help pave a faster road to a more equitable working world. We’ll hear from notable female marketers repping JetBlue, IBM, Hershey Food, SAP, Gap, John Hancock and Anheuser Busch. And we’ll end the day with a roundtable featuring honorees from our just-announced Top 100 Women in Brand Marketing. Hope to see you there.
