Save the date for our 10th Annual Conference + Expo, again reimagined this year to the:
2nd Annual Digital Summit Women’s Conference
This year the Conference has been transformed to a half-day experience in our own 3D world where attendees enjoy our ATHENA Ceremony, Keynote, Breakouts and Vendor/Sponsor Expo.
Join our virtual world (after creating your ‘virtual self’) from 9am-1pm and walk from Expo booth to booth, meet us in the Ballroom for the ATHENA Ceremony, choose your Breakout Conference Room, order lunch from the Lunch Kiosk and have it delivered to you, and network with us ‘face-to-face’ on the rooftop, the beach and even enjoy a boat ride. We are taking “virtual event” to a new level so you can connect with other women around the region (and beyond) both personally and professionally who are on the path to empowerment and growth!
Why Women Attend:
2021 ATHENA Recipient
Virginia Dodge – President, VA Productions
2021 Keynote Speaker
Senior Executive Vice President, Head of Commercial Banking at Fulton Financial Corporation, the bank’s parent company. She is also a member of the Corporation’s senior management team – one of 7 females on this team!
Join Meg as she recounts growing up the CEO’s daughter, success in a male dominated field while being the “main bread winner” for her family, and the importance of mentoring each other in a positive work culture. Following her presentation we will be hosting a live Q&A interview with First National Bank’s (and personal friend to Meg) Mary Ann Moffitt, Senior Vice President Commercial Banking Team Leader.
2021 Breakout Sessions
Walking Out Windows
Karen Loftus, Founder, Owner & Adventuress in Chief – Women’s Adventure Travels
Comedian and speaker Karen Loftus takes the corporate, conference, and college crowd on a wild ride as she recounts her hilarious and, at times, heart-wrenching history in entertainment, media, and more recently in travel. This groundbreaking gal was one of if not the first female comedian in several countries. Her first international tour was in The Middle East twenty years ago. She has since taken her humor, her plays, and her moxie worldwide. There was no path nor any mentors. More often than not, she “Walked Out a Window”, not knowing if she was going to fly, fall or fail. There are several takeaways from this inspiring event. Be prepared to whip open some windows after this Lofty Talk.
Coming Out in the Workplace
Shannon Laird, Area Car Sales Manager – Enterprise Car Rentals
What does it mean to “Come Out”?? I want to have an open conversation about bringing light to myths on employees coming out at work, the fears, insecurities and positive impact of having strong allies in fellow co-workers and leadership. Having that support can help people find strength, confidence and improve performance. I want to help educate people, give support and advice to bring employees together on a topic that is so important for an inclusive environment and hopefully people can take back the information and share it with those at work and in their personal lives.
