Event description


MEMBERS ONLY - Austin Women in Digital July Meetup

This month's theme: Return on Inclusion: How 4 Badass Women Have Learned to Lead

McKinsey & Co. found that companies were 56% more profitable when women held executive positions. Meanwhile, Stanford found that 57% of women leave the workforce. How can we reconcile these two facts? Why do modern women choose to pursue or leave their careers, how can we support and elevate more women to strive for leadership roles & C-suite titles, and how can we create a more balanced and diverse future? Join us for a discussion led by Sarah Moore, Vice President of Brand + Revenue Marketing at Spredfast to explore topics around the value of gender diversity, why empowering women matters, and how each generation is uniquely suited to affect change and overcome obstacles in the workplace.

6:00pm - 6:15pm: Check-in. Mix + Mingle.

"I recently attended my first Women in Digital meet up and it was unlike any other 'networking' event. While every person in the room was there in a professional capacity, there was an undercurrent of shared values, shared struggles, and shared desire for change.

It was a powerful experience to see women band together to raise each other up in a way that only women can. I can't recommend joining Women in Digital enough. This is a professional community that feels like the home we never knew we needed, but have always been seeking." - Alaura Weaver, Copywriter + Content Strategist
