WIN members Sarah Joyce, managing director of Electrosonic, and Jane Hammersley, European business manager for TD Maverick and member of InfoComm International’s Leadership Search Committee, organized the breakfast at ISE and will help guide the proceedings.
“The WIN breakfast at ISE will be a working group session to help chart the future activities of this important, dynamic and engaged council,” Joyce said. “Female executives from companies throughout Europe will chair small groups and facilitate discussion of local issues and develop initiatives to work through in 2016. Following the success of similar WIN events in Australia and Mexico last year, we are determined to make WIN Europe a vibrant community of InfoComm members creating activities throughout 2016 that further develop the mission.”
WIN leaders have invited graphic recording artist Birgit Smit to allow members to visually see their ideas. Through Smit’s illustrations, created live during the breakfast, participants will be engaged by the morning’s event and be able to visually see key takeaways.
The organizers say that in addition to the working part of the breakfast, there will time set aside for networking and meeting colleagues.
The Women of InfoComm Network was created to provide a global community of InfoComm members and other professionals committed to supporting and empowering women who work in the technology and AV industry. Since its inception, WIN has hosted activities and events throughout the world, including trade shows in Europe, United States, Mexico and India. Interested professionals – women or men – can join today and follow the council’s activities through its LinkedIn Group.
“WIN events are happening globally,” Joyce said. “Together, we can make change happen in workforce development, CTS certification training, leadership development, and more.”
