Make sure you listen to Episode 136: Women and Leadership in the AV Industry – the AVIXA Women’s Council (Part 1)
This Part 2 is all about the AVIXA Women’s Council Breakfast at InfoComm 2019, June 13th 7:30 to 9:30 AM.
Christy talks about how she and Alexis were responsible for overseeing all that has been planned for the Breakfast (and they got help). Corey mentions Alexis, as well as someone else he had tried to get for this podcast. He talks about some of the previous keynotes, and mentions this year’s keynote, the CEO of Shure, Inc. Marika and Cory talk about her and what she means to the Breakfast as well as the industry.
TierPM is the main sponsor for the Breakfast, and Marika talks about that.
All then talk about what they’re expecting at the Breakfast as well as InfoComm, Christy mentions some things that attendees can look forward to Thursday morning. Susan talks about connecting and reconnecting, as well as growing personally and professionally. Michelle talks about her positive experience from last year’s Breakfast, and she talks about supporting one another, as well as diversity. Cristina (her first InfoComm) talks about the Breakfast as well as being a facilitator for the Women in AV and IT event taking place afterward. Christina talks about the face to face aspect (it’s her first time at InfoComm).
Maura (it’s her first InfoComm being fairly new to the industry) talks about meeting women from different backgrounds and different ends of the industry, as well as connecting and how important that is. Marika discusses feeling the energy, as well as seeing people she knows as well as meeting people. She also talks about “sharing stories.” Corey talks about Cory as he knows her, and Cory discusses the first Breakfast (which she was at), and her great expectations for this one. She also talks about the topic of “women in the industry,” as well as the AV Tribe.
Finally, Corey asks each person on the show about a 5-year perspective about women in the AV industry – listen in for excellent answers here.
