Women in Digital

Today more than ever we’re seeing innovation and fast paced developments in emerging media and technologies. Each of these new media offer novel ways for brands to connect with and interact with audiences. These emerging technologies also make a habit of drastically altering the ways in which people shop, consume media, and interact with each other and the world. Today’s women in marketing discuss how can brands tap into these developments to gain a deeper understanding of who their customers are and what they want.

Still the Only Woman in the Room

Recently attending an executive-level ad tech dinner, Amanda found herself in an all-too familiar situation: she was the only woman in the room. While there’s been positive movement getting women to the table, we have to do more. The first step is to move the discussion from a reactive stance to a proactive one. Today’s climate gifts us the opportunity to diversify not only our industries, but perhaps even more importantly, the leadership driving our industries forward. Doing so is smart for business.

Women in Marketing Leadership Discussion

In this discussion, today’s women in marketing leadership will address the major trends, challenges, opportunities, and shifts in consumer behaviors that they are seeing in the market, with an outlook toward 2019 and beyond.

What’s keeping them up at night? What are they excited about? What new technologies and platforms offer novel opportunities to engage their customers in meaningful ways… and which are just shiny objects? How can marketing and technology leaders structure their teams and recruit highly coveted talent for a new era that demands an increasing array of skill sets?
