Virtual experience featuring speakers from tech, financial, sports and education focuses on 90-Day Personal Brand Action Plan for professional women
RESTON, Virginia – January 21, 2022 – The She–Suite, the female-focused initiative of Velvet Suite designed to empower working women with the tools and supportive community to develop a roadmap for their success, today announced that they will hold their 7th annual She–Suite Summit on March 11, 2022. The She–Suite Summit will be a fully virtual, online experience featuring speakers from Mastercard, Emerson Global, Logitech, Georgetown University and The Los Angeles Dodgers, among others.
According to Harvard Business Review, “The Great Resignation” and changes in work trends have affected over 4 million Americans, with mid-career employees experiencing the greatest increase in resignation rates. This has left many professional women evaluating their lives and work journeys. Professional women participating in The She–Suite Summit will have opportunities for real-time networking with speakers and attendees, as well as one-on-one idea exchanges with skilled connections. In addition to the purpose-centered programming, the beneficial strength of The She–Suite Summit is the 90-Day Personal Brand Action Plan framework, where each participant will leverage proven strategies to formulate their “next bold move” for both work and well-being.
“Virtual events for professional women are valuable career tools, but what makes us different is a stellar program and speakers, combined with our proven methodology and set of materials designed to provide true breakthroughs,” said Melissa Dawn Simkins, CEO of Velvet Suite. “The ability to hear from world-class business and educational leaders, and to then use that inspiration to build a 90-Day Personal Action Plan, makes this an extremely productive, valuable – and engaging – experience.”
Cassey Bass, senior analyst at Toyota North America and previous attendee of The She–Suite Summit noted “This event not only helps women navigate various stages of their professional career, but helps them better understand their brand, the value that it brings, and how it influences their professional life.”
Some of the world’s leading corporations also recognize the value of fostering women’s leadership throughout their organizations and have elected to sponsor The She–Suite Summit22. Merck leads the pack with the Platinum sponsorship, followed by T-Mobile at the Premier level. Procter & Gamble, AstraZeneca, Boston Scientific, BAE Systems, Becton Dickinson, Ingredion, LMI and McKesson have come on at the Partner level. General Dynamics, Cognosante, LinkVisum Consulting Group, Maximus and Medtronic round out early commitments of sponsor support.
Former She–Suite Summit executive speaker, Damon Jones, chief communications officer for Procter & Gamble notes from his prior participation, “Men must play an active role in driving gender equality, from prioritizing access to systems and structures where women are not fully represented, to shifting stereotypical gender roles at home and in the workplace, to visibility and financially supporting programs like The She-Suite that equip future generations of women leading to maximize their success.”
