The New Year brings new opportunities for personal and professional development, and NewVoiceMedia is excited to kick off 2018 by hosting and sponsoring some special events designed to energize and empower women at work.
First, we’ll be partnering with the Salesforce Women's Network and Skuid for the fourth annual Women in Industries Event. This incredible evening of learning and networking is happening on Jan. 10 in San Francisco and features a C-level panel of women who are blazing trails in the tech industry. Panelists include: Corinne Sklar, Chief Marketing Officer of Bluewolf; Tara Ryan, Chief Marketing Officer of Skuid; Polly Sumner, Chief Adoption Officer at Salesforce; Allyson Fryhoff, Chief Revenue Officer at Salesforce.Org; and Alvina Antar, Chief Information Officer at Zuora.
This expert panel will tackle topics such as navigating difficult career decisions; mentoring; advantages and disadvantages in the tech eco-system; and how they personally define and live their dream jobs. Tiffani Bova, Global Customer and Innovation Evangelist at Salesforce, will moderate the discussion.
The Women in Industries event will also feature special guest Kara Duggan, Director of Community Partnerships and Philanthropy at La Casa de las Madres, who will share the influential work her organization is doing in the Bay Area.
The mission of La Casa de las Madres is to respond to calls for help from domestic violence victims, of all ages, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The organization gives survivors the tools to transform their lives and seeks to prevent future violence by educating the community and redefining public perceptions about domestic violence. NewVoiceMedia recently raised more than $4,500 to support Las Casa de las Madres, along with New York’s Women in Need organization, during an employee fundraiser in December. We are honored to continue to support this cause and will be collecting more dontations here.
NewVoiceMedia is also sponsoring the Salesforce NYC Women in Leadership Event, taking place Jan. 11 at the National. We’re thrilled to participate in another great night of networking and conversation focused on empowering women in the workplace. The event will include a panel discussion and Q&A session with Aryanne Ferranti, Vice President of Operations at XO Group; Jenni Luke, CEO of Step Up; Janel Lehman, CEO of Janel Dyan; and Betsy Bilhorn, Senior Vice President of Products at Jitterbit.
If you can’t join us for these events, don’t worry! We’ll be sharing insights and inspiration on our social media channels and blog during and after the panel discussions. You can also check out the presentation from last year’s Women in Industries Event — Executive Success Trends — here.
