“The meetings and events industry has and continues to be the fabric of my thirty years as a professional. Our industry touches and impacts every industry and frankly every person on the globe in one fashion or the other. It has been a privilege to work alongside and with some of the most amazing professionals that any industry could hope to attract.
Women are a major cornerstone of our industry not only as employees and attendees but also as mentors and leaders. It struck me that in my 30+ years in our industry I have only once directly reported to a woman, my current position. Association for Women in Events recognizes the importance and the inclusion of everyone in our industry and fills a gap as it relates to the growth, development and creating opportunities for woman contributors and leaders of tomorrow. It is a privilege to support this organization in the early stages and to be welcomed as an equal, a partner, a peer and a friend.
I am humbled and honored to be an active participant and look forward to seeing AWE flourish and grow.”
