NEW YORK, October 23/ She Leads 2017 will take place on Friday, October 27th from 8:30am – 7:00pm at the Wells Fargo Conference Center, 150 East 42nd Street in NYC. This conference marks the fifth annual gathering that brings together 250+ women leaders, accomplished female founders and entrepreneurs with experts in marketing & social media, public relations, entrepreneurship, personal branding, entertainment and music, global business development, finance and the news media.
The mission of She Leads Media is to bring gender balance to the world by educating, inspiring and providing women with the tools, resources and networks they need to increase their visibility in the media, in leadership roles and as business owners.
The annual She Leads 2017 conference is designed to offer a primarily female audience practical and actionable advice to pursue new business opportunities, scale existing business and hone leadership skills. The format of the conference includes keynotes, panel discussions, several networking opportunities, and a vendor showcase of female-run business. She Leads 2017 will once again feature the extremely popular Pitch The Media panel, where audience members are given the unique chance to pitch themselves or their businesses and receive live, constructive feedback from a panel of media experts such as Linda Lacina, Managing Editor of Entrepreneur.com and Alicia Syrett, CEO of Pantegrion Capital and regular guest of CNBC’s Power Pitch. Other panel highlights include the exploration of which entrepreneurial path women can choose, how to effectively leverage digital and social media in 2017 and beyond, how women lead in the US and around the world, and they ways that women can more powerfully show up as leaders from a 360-degree perspective – in person, online and from within. Attendees will have the opportunity to network with speakers and like-minded professionals to learn, pitch ideas, and get tips to apply immediately in business and life.
Adrienne Garland, CEO of She Leads Media says, “The annual She Leads conference offers women who are serious about taking action to make an impact with a face-to-face environment to learn, network with a purpose, and do business in an intimate and genuinely supportive way.” Garland adds, “It’s my mission to get more women into powerful positions in the media, in government, in boardrooms and at the helms of thriving businesses so that there is equality. This world needs to achieve gender balance rapidly, and I believe women are ready to accelerate the force of change. The She Leads Annual Conference provides a forum for women to learn from experts and one another so that we are all inspired to take action. I’m confident that She Leads attendees will come away with the inspiration, knowledge, tools and connections to begin to take more prominent leadership roles in all aspects of their lives.“
