We will hear from executives paving the way to create more creative and profitable organizations by improving diversity, equity and inclusion within their companies and our industry.”
The 2021 Summit will also be full of new opportunities as we celebrate our first 15 years and the next. “We are excited to offer an innovative conference agenda that allows attendees to invest in their wellness, career development and financial success,” said Wnet CEO Wendy Holliday. “Our new Learning Labs and Power Sessions will complement the traditional educational sessions for maximum learning and engagement.
