The inaugural SHE Bacardi Women’s Summit will convene thought provoking speakers and hundreds of women (and men) to unleash female potential to rise their holistic leadership potential, while lifting others in the process.
In collaboration with SHE Summit, a globally celebrated women’s empowerment conference, inspirational speakers and corporate leaders will convene in South Florida to celebrate female empowerment at the first ever Bacardi women’s conference on Sept. 29 at the Hilton Miami Downtown.
Aimed at cultivating prospects and rising top talent in South Florida, the SHE Bacardi Women’s Summit will feature a prestigious list of speakers with incredible personal and professional stories. Informative workshops, thought-provoking panel discussions and keynotes will cover everything from finding your purpose and passion to leadership and intrapreneurship to motherhood and well-being.
“I am a true believer in not just taking what you get, but creating what you want,” said Marlene Gordon, general counsel for Bacardi in North America and global lead for the Bacardi Women in Leadership initiative. “My advice to women is to define who you are, your priorities, goals, and more importantly why you want to achieve them. Having this clarity is what lets you fight for ideas and yourself.
“The S.H.E Bacardi Women’s Summit will help tie all of these together to empower women to do more than they thought they could achieve.”
The event will commence with an opening from Claudia Chan and Marlene Gordon, followed by a keynote on passion and purpose by storytelling expert, speaker and coach Andy Henriquez.
Learn and be inspired by corporate panelists such as Bacardi president for North America Pete Carr, CEO for Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits Wayne Chaplin, Bacardi Limited board member Lisanne Dorion, Bacardi vice president of Indirect Procurement Paula Glickenhaus, empowerment and business expert Jen Groover, Morgan Stanley vice president turned founder of I.AM.You Studio Lauren Imparato, Ryder’s vice president of Global Product Insurance & Risk Management Amy Wagner on motherhood, and leading parenting expert Simon Isaacs from Father.ly.
“At SHE Summit, we believe corporations are a massive vehicle for change in today’s women’s (or gender equality) movement — both for the internal talent they employ to the external people their products, services and campaigns touch,” said Claudia Chan, SHE Summit founder and chief. “We are proud to work closely with Bacardi to bring the SHE (she and he help empower) experience to South Florida to strengthen our collective social impact.”
Join more than 400 professionals representing Bacardi, partner corporations and firms across various industries including marketing, transportation, law, consulting, and more. The event will conclude with a networking cocktail reception sponsored by Bacardi.
