InfoComm International, the trade association representing the global AV industry and co-owner of the Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) trade show, has announced its first ‘Women of InfoComm’ networking breakfast for ISE 2015.
The Women of InfoComm Network (WIN) is committed to “promoting and empowering women in the AV and IT industries”. By participating in WIN’s live and online events throughout the year, InfoComm says its members can “make connections, find resources, pursue education, discover mentors and identify opportunities to advance women in the industry”. WIN seeks ways to raise awareness of gender diversity and celebrates the achievements of women who work in AV and IT.
“The Women of InfoComm Network breakfast at ISE will explore what women – and men – in the industry can do to encourage women into successful long-term careers in technology,” explains Betsy Jaffe, vice-president of communications at InfoComm International.
Sharing experiences and highlights from her 20-year career in technology, the breakfast will be presented by InfoComm director Sarah Joyce, vice-president, EMEA, at Electrosonic, and Diana Danziger, an organisational development and leadership consultant, will host an interactive session aimed at promoting women in technology. The session concludes with networking and a roundtable discussion to solicit input from participants about potential WIN activities in Europe.
The Women of InfoComm breakfast will take place at the First Lounge restaurant, Amsterdam RAI, from 8–9.30 on 11 February, and costs €40. Sign up at the ISE website.
