WAVIT to Offer Star Wars-Inspired DEI Session at cavlo on May 4th
Women in AV/IT (WAVIT) will sponsor and present a Star Wars-inspired discussion panel at the cavlo trade show on May 4th, a.k.a Star Wars Day. The DEI session, called “May the Force of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Be with You: Lessons from Star Wars”, will feature WAVIT Board members and founders Gina Sansivero, Susan Wilhite, and Brandy Alvarado-Miranda.
“I am a self-proclaimed Star Wars nerd, and there are many lessons in DEI we can learn from the franchise,” said Alvarado-Miranda, who is also CEO of BAM! Marketing & PR Agency. “Some of the ideas we’ll discuss embody themes we see in Star Wars—saving our galaxy (industry) and using the Force for good (equity), complex characters from many different perspectives (diversity), and women in key leadership roles: Princess Leia, Queen Amadala, Ahsoka Tano, Rey Skywalker, etc. We’d love for people to join this epic discussion at cavlo on Star Wars Day!”
The May 4 cavlo show marks the first time WAVIT, which launched in mid-January, will exhibit at a trade show. “A huge part of our mission is to enrich, educate, inspire, and empower women in tech,” said Sansivero, vice president of marketing and corporate communications at AtlasIED and WAVIT board president. “Exhibiting at cavlo will allow us to meet potential new members and give our current members a place to connect with each other face-to-face.”
The cavlo trade show will be held on May 4 at The Orleans Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, NV. For more information on the cavlo show, visit cavlo.tech.
