The Spirit Forward Bacardi Women In Leadership Empowerment Series kicks off for the first time ever in Houston on Monday, February 12th at Hotel ZaZa for a full day of motivation and inspiration as we come together to champion the exceptional women that make up the spirit and hospitality industries.
Open to all, the Series will feature Dana Cowin, former Editor-in-Chief of Food & Wine Magazine as the Keynote Speaker and will cover thought-provoking topics that span diversity and inclusion in the workplace, sexual harassment, to motivating story sessions on breaking stigmas and hands-on workshops on financial planning and self-defense.
Each of these sessions will be led by prestigious speakers, dynamic industry professionals, as well as peers from members of the hospitality industry, including President of the United States Bartender’s Guild Pamela Wiznitzer, Founder and President of Financial Gym Shannon McLay, and Speed Rack Founders Ivy Mix and Lynnette Marrero, to name a few. Members of the local Texas hospitality industry, including Jessica Sanders, Alba Huerta and Bobby Heugel, will also be lending their expertise and experience on several panels.
A portion of the ticket sales will be donated to Dress for Success. Breakfast and lunch will be provided along with a celebratory Happy Hour to conclude the day. [Organizer's description]
