Nationwide Marketing Group Creates Female Leadership Group, WIN
Nationwide Marketing Group today announced the founding of WIN: Women in Nationwide, to support female business advancement within Nationwide and its member and vendor organizations. The group has already planned a number of networking, mentorship, and business and leadership development opportunities to help women thrive in leading roles.
“We are very fortunate to have a strong contingent of talented women spearheading business development and growth within our membership, at our vendor partner organizations and across Nationwide Marketing Group itself,” says Jennifer Danko, vice president of technology at Site on Time, a Nationwide Marketing Group company, and a founding member of WIN. “We look forward to bringing these gifted business leaders together in New Orleans to share our unique perspectives and strengths, and identify new pathways that encourage women at all levels to explore leadership roles they may not have considered before.”
To kick off what is sure to be an incredible journey, the group will host its inaugural meeting at PrimeTime in New Orleans on Sunday, Aug.18 at 12 p.m. CT. The meeting will include a panel discussion featuring female leaders across the industry. The women will touch on their recent accomplishments, different resources that are available, and how women can best support each other to help drive business success. Afterwards, Jody Urquhart, author of All Work & No Say, will deliver a humorous and inspirational presentation on how female leaders can use their talents to influence, energize, and engage their colleagues.
“Diversity and inclusion are core to Wells Fargo, and we are honored to sponsor WIN’s inaugural event that recognizes the contribution of women and diverse members of the appliances, electronics, furniture and bedding industries,” says Chad Lyon, president E&A Group, Wells Fargo CDF. “For more than 25 years, we have supported Nationwide’s member growth and our shared vision of advocating for women’s success in the retail industry.”
Tickets for the WIN luncheon are reserved for PrimeTime attendees only, and registration is preferred.
