AWE Member Webinar Series

As a member benefit, AWE members have access to our monthly webinar series featuring influential women discussing and interacting with attendees on topics such as financial planning, negotiation, skill development, starting a business and more. If there's a topic you'd like to see featured, please email us!

January 25, 2018 at 2:00PM EST: Kiki J. Fox, Senior Manager, National Sales at Core-apps and Incoming President of AWE, on Leading a Forward Thinking Association. This webinar is avaliable for members and non-members.

Join AWE for its first webinar of 2018 as we interview our new President and Co-Founder, Kiki J. Fox. From the moment news of the association hit the industry in 2015, Kiki was shouting from the rooftops about this revolutionary association focused on the advancement, promotion and advocacy for women in events. Committed to the AWE vision, she and her fellow founders called for like-minded event professional candidates to establish its founding board and committees. Three years later, as Kiki steps into the Presidential role, we get a closer look at her passions, goals, and vision of the future for this groundbreaking organization. 

Key items you’ll learn from this webinar: 

  • Kiki’s intentions for the future of AWE 
  • Her passions and what that means for AWE’s initiatives in our education and events programs 
  • What it means to run an organization the way it’s supposed to be run and not the way everyone thinks an Association should be run 
  • Kiki’s leadership journey and career path 

Kiki J. Fox is also Senior Manager of National Sales at Core-apps and a quintessential young professional and organizational shape-shifter.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar. We hope that after this webinar you’ll be inspired to join AWE or deepen your involvement!
