DPAA Announces Women’s Empowerment Online event on March 16 with Special Guest
Cara Lewis, Chief Investment Officer, Dentsu
NEW YORK – March 7, 2023 – DPAA, the global trade marketing association, driving the growth and digitization of out-of-home media and its growing role in the omnichannel mix, announced today its first Women’s Empowerment event of the year, with special guest speaker Cara Lewis, Chief Investment Officer at Dentsu.
The event which will be held online at 11am ET on March 15, entitled “Advancing at Work Through Allies and Advocates” will help attendees map out a plan to build their own personal board of directors to help them navigate their careers. Research shows men are more likely to build sponsor and mentor relationships to help them navigate tricky situations at work, position themselves for promotions, etc. All too often women are told to find a mentor or sponsor but aren’t sure where to begin. The result is women are not promoted at the same rate as male counterparts. This workshop will provide action steps for women in this position. Male allies are encouraged to attend to understand the role they can play.
