Save Your Spot at our Women in Leadership Ann Arbor Event
On October 17, 2018, a groundbreaking Ann Arbor event will take place at the Zingerman’s Greyline at 100 N. Ashley Street, hosted by DaySmart Software. The 2018 Women in Leadership Ann Arbor event aims to provide a forum for women and community leaders to hear from a variety of different viewpoints on the issue of gender equality in business.
Attendees will have the opportunity to network with female business leaders from the local community (and beyond!) and benefit from the insights of women who have faced bias, inequality and unfairness in the workplace and managed to create success for themselves.
The Purpose of the Women in Leadership Conference
This landmark conference provides an opportunity for every person to benefit from taking the time to listen to what powerful women have to say. The fact is, opportunity should have no barriers based on gender. There should be no pay gap between men and women doing the same work, and women shouldn’t have to work harder to be heard in a professional setting.
By listening to women in leadership who have overcome these obstacles, attendees can develop a blueprint for themselves. We’ve created the perfect environment to promote understanding and acquire insight from the wisdom and experiences of our speakers. We will end the session with a “fireside chat” where questions will be addressed and ideas can be shared. During this Ann Arbor event, Zingerman’s Deli will provide catering and there will be an open bar at the venue.
Attendees will hear from female leaders with a variety of perspectives:
Engelina JaspersEngelina Jaspers is a seasoned executive, having served as Vice President in a variety of corporate roles. In fact, the only constant in Engelina’s career, has been change. Over time, she learned to adapt and flourish in the face of career uncertainty, a practice which she calls “marketing flexology“.
She will discuss the ways in which women can succeed in adapting to unplanned change and prospering, even when times are uncertain. Her talk is called “How You Show Up”, and will discuss strategies to present yourself as a business-first leader.
Cindy SchipaniCindy Schipani is a highly-accomplished business and law professor at the University of Michigan’s renowned Ross School of Business. Her talk at the 2018 Women in Leadership Conference is called “Making Money Moves”, a practical approach at overcoming the factors that contribute to women making less money than their male counterparts—primarily as a function of the structural gender pay gap.
Trey BoyntonTrey Boynton is Diversity and Inclusion Manager at Duo Security and knows exactly what it means to overcome obstacles. In her talk, Trey talks about her experiences in promoting diversity in a male-dominated tech sector. Her talk is called “Know Your Audience” and discusses practical approaches to communicating in a way that people in your environment will be best able to understand you.
As Founder and CEO of Engage, Brooke Boyle specializes in connecting individuals with opportunity by introducing them to people they wouldn’t have otherwise met. She is setting a new standard in professional networking and community building by helping individuals meaningfully diversify their networks. Her commitment to supporting individuals driven to participate in their communities has attracted national attention. Brooke will host the fireside chat where you will have the opportunity to ask questions.
