Join us on September 22nd in New York for the 2016 Women’s Leadership Forum, AppNexus’ annual conference for women currently in, or aspiring to, leadership in the global digital community.
In 2015, AppNexus hosted its inaugural Women’s Leadership Forum, a half-day conference built around a singular focus: to provide women working in the digital ecosystem with actionable strategies for leadership success.
Our goal wasn’t simply to discuss barriers many women face, whether it’s the failure of companies to identify and promote women into leadership roles, inflexible workplace policies, unequal pay, or isolation due to lack of role models, networks and mentors.
No. Our goal was to provide the 230 women (and men) in attendance with specific ways to break those barriers down, starting the moment they left the auditorium.
Topics included “How to Stand Out (in your company and in Digital)”, “Diversity is Being Invited to the Party: Inclusion is Being Asked to Dance“, “Mentorship and Maternity“, and “How to Build Consensus…and When to Ignore It!”.
But we were only getting started…
Following the success of last year’s event, AppNexus’ Women’s Leadership Forum returns on September 22nd in New York, with an exciting new program crafted specifically for women currently in – or aspiring to – leadership in the global digital community.
At this year’s Forum, we will feature leaders from a variety of backgrounds and organizations, including Peggy Johnson, EVP, Business Development, Microsoft; Sallie Krawcheck, Chair, Ellevate Network; Deepa Purushothaman, National Managing Director of WIN, Deloitte; Wenda Harris Millard, President & COO, MediaLink; and Lisa Ryan Howard, SVP, Advertising, New York Times, in addition to senior female leaders from AppNexus.
By doing so, we aim to address the of-cited barrier that discourages many women from seeking leadership positions; that “you cannot be what you cannot see”.
We believe it’s important that when you look up, you see someone that looks like you. And by showcasing leadership success stories that can be put into action we can not only help get more women into positions of influence but also enable them to affect change once they’re there.
Guests will also have the opportunity to meet with New York’s digital leaders of today and tomorrow, building meaningful relationships that live on long after the event itself.
