Women of InfoComm launches 2017 Empowerment Alliances at ISE
The Women of InfoComm Network (WIN) launched its 2017 activities at an engaging networking event at ISE 2017. Taking place at The Emerald Room in the RAI on Wednesday 8 February from 17:00 – 19:00, the event built on last year’s WIN programme and, following feedback from the group, spearheaded even more WIN activities in Europe during 2017.
The event at ISE kicked off with speed networking: a chance to spend a few minutes with every person in attendance in a fun and relaxed introductory way followed by cocktails and canapes, with an opportunity for further general networking. During the session, attendees helped to compile a list of industry events for 2017 which WIN members will be available to meet up at around the globe. A calendar was then drawn up and made available to facilitate further meet-ups. To round off the free-to-attend event, WIN launched WIN Career Empowerment Alliances for 2017, an initiative to provide opportunities to discuss such issues as career advancement, training, work-life balance, conflict resolution and more.
Founded in 2015, the WIN council is a global network of individuals who are committed to promoting and empowering women in the AV and IT industries. Through local working groups, in-person networking and online events, members can make connections, find resources, pursue education, discover mentors, and identify opportunities to advance women in the industry.
