Women play key roles in the hospitality and meeting industries, but many of us find it challenging to move into leadership positions, find our distinct career paths and balance our work and professional lives. This virtual summit is designed for people of all genders who support MPI’s community of women and who want to discover new and emerging tools for creating successful pathways to leadership for the women in our industry. Our educational line-up includes the following amazing speakers and sessions.
As we advance in our careers, our expertise in a targeted area can often create blinders to the bigger picture of our organization and pigeon hole us into our current position. Having a general understanding of business and financial drivers will not only help us understand what keeps our bosses up at night, but it will help us feel more confident in executive-level situations. Succinct communication and managing our bosses are also key components of our career advancement. We will discuss how to craft effective messages and drive the decisions we need.
