It’s the return of the super panel! (What is a super panel?

These are just a few of the awesome marketing speakers you’ll find when you search the Innovation Women platform….and they all just happen to be women.  We have speakers from all over the world — you’ll notice London UK and London Ontario, for example. We have literally hundreds of speakers who can address marketing topics, including:

  • Content marketing
  • Marketing technology
  • Social media
  • Brand management
  • Branding
  • Digital marketing
  • Analytics

Closing The Gender Gap

 

This week, two different online publications featured Innovation Women as a solution to gender inequities in the world: Singularity Hub and TechTarget. While we talk about being a visibility bureau for our speakers, this kind of visibility helps the overall cause by making Innovation Women a destination for event managers and other journalists too.

“Every time we get a woman on stage, she’s able to make her business more successful or her career more successful, but she’s also a success example for others. So, the more women we get on stage, the more women we will get on stage.”

“Yes, I had a great time!” said the caption on the smiling picture. Donna Smith Bellinger, the founder of the Business Revenue Accelerator, was posting on social media about her recent speaking engagement at ISACA’s SheLeadsTech, a half day seminar following the North American CACS conference held in Chicago April 30-May 2, 2018 — a speaking engagement she got through Innovation Women.

Why Some Women Say ‘No’ Bingo Card

When you place as many speakers as we do, you spend a lot of time at events.  And after some of those events, you spend time buttonholing the event managers and talking about why they let so many #allmale panels take the stage. There are at least a bingo card full of excuses (tip o’ the hat to the geniuses at Jezebel) on why conferences don’t have equal representation onstage.
