2023 Women's Leadership Panel

Women’s Leadership Panel 2023 – Beyond the Box

Our fave movie of the summer reminded us that until we step out of our comfort zones, we don’t truly know what we’re capable of. Are you ready to go beyond the box?

AdFed and Ad 2 came together to host the 2023 Women’s Leadership Panel on November 2 at The Depot, where we dove into conversations about breaking the mold and rewriting the rules. Guests heard from distinguished panelists who created their own unique paths to success – and enjoyed a keynote from speaker Giselle Ugarte.
