#GALSNGEAR to Host Women’s Leadership Summit at NAB Show
#GALSNGEAR, will host the #GALSNGEAR CONNECT Women’s Leadership Summit, a half-day program at the 2023 NAB Show, that is designed to propel women along their leadership journey with next-level, hands-on work.
This year’s Summit, held in partnership with NAB, will take place on Tuesday, April 18, from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in LVCC West Hall Meeting Rooms W208-W209. The event will feature leaders from across the industry in sessions designed to help women build negotiation confidence, access meaningful networking, and gain industry-leader insights that apply to their careers in media and entertainment.
“The Women’s Leadership Summit at NAB Show is for any woman ready to take a few hours out to invest in her own career and development as a leader,” said Michelle Kelly, SVP and chief marketing officer, Global Connections and Events, NAB. “While the programming is phenomenal, it’s not just about the skills and the networking. The summit creates a space where women feel supported and heard. No matter where they are in their careers, they can find resources and a community that will help them take that next step.”
The event will kick off with a networking breakfast, which will be followed by Susan Borke hosting a workshop on negotiation skills. There will also be a speed-dating-style networking session hosted by Amanda Sapp, general manager of Houston’s Amazing 102.5FM. This networking session will be followed by a panel of notable women in the broadcast industry discussing key inflection points in their careers, industry trends, and the role of negotiating in their own work. The event will conclude with a box networking lunch with the Sports Video Group.
“As you build out your network to support your career as a leader, cross-disciplinary knowledge is a real strength,” said #GALSNGEAR founder Amy DeLouise. “We are not in the trenches alone, and it’s important to form connections with women across distinct areas of the business who can share different experiences and allow us to learn from a broader perspective. The summit provides a great opportunity to make these connections and to create a strong cohort of contacts across complementary disciplines.”
In addition to hosting the #GALSNGEAR CONNECT Women’s Leadership Summit at the 2023 NAB Show, #GALSNGEAR will partner with SVG to host “Sports Broadcasting and the Metaverse” on Sunday, April 16. In this NAB Show session on the show floor, experts will look at the new and emerging sports broadcasting landscape.
A post-session happy hour sponsored by Dell Technologies, NVIDIA, and EVS will follow in the adjacent networking area. An always-popular off-site #GALSNGEAR & Friends Celebrate networking event the evening of Tuesday, April 18, will be sponsored by Signiant.
Registration for the Summit (NAB Show exhibits pass included) is open now, with early-bird pricing until March 31.
