The Travel Industry Executive Women's Network (TIEWN) 2nd Annual Conference
|The Travel Industry Executive Women's Network will hold its 2nd annual Global Leadership Forum on January 28, 2015 in Los Angeles. The Network serves to uphold the discussion of women in high-powered roles across the travel & hospitality industries. A distinctive value of attending the event is the ongoing discussion after the Forum wherein the distinct role of executive women will remain in focus through various TIEWN channels, providing continuous community support.|
Some of the topics being discussed at the Forum include: What factors either hinder or support advancement of women to executive positions in our industry; why employers should have a more diverse employee base on the top levels of the company and what having a woman's perspective does to the bottom line; why the importance of supporting other women and being supported as well as paying-it-forward represents best practice.
