4 Events Supporting a More Female Future During Advertising Week NY
With the rise in attention around women’s social justice issues like equal pay, gaining leadership roles, and education, how are we addressing these in the digital advertising industry?
At this year’s Advertising Week NY, gender equality in the workforce is getting greater focus — with Rubicon Project leading the charge with our Women’s Leadership Breakfast.
We’ve picked 4 of the most relevant events, panels, and discussions happening during the week that will help ensure the future is female.
What can companies do to ensure gender equality in the workforce? Rubicon Project, USA TODAY NETWORK, and AdExchange will tackle this timely topic via a lively discussion around gender parity, featuring some of the industry’s brightest women leaders in digital advertising and media.
Join panelists Alysia Borsa (Meredith Corporation), Maureen Bosetti (Initiative), Amy Lanzi (Publicis Media) and Erica Barrett (Spark Foundry) as they discuss how to mobilize the collective power of women, moderated by Sara Sluis (AdExchanger).
