Approximately half of the people who enter the marketing industry are women, yet so few sit at the top of their organizations. In this session, Advertising Women of New York will host a panel of industry leaders to reveal new intelligence gathered through an unprecedented study conducted with EY and LinkedIn. Join this important conversation about when and why women exit the industry, and what companies can do to propel and retain their female leaders.

Fueled by a new vision, AWNY has conducted the industry's most comprehensive study of women in marketing across multiple sectors, including media, creative and digital agencies, plus publishing, ad tech and PR. In collaboration with EY, and leveraging powerful LinkedIn data sets and analytics, the AWNY study explores the leadership journey of women to understand the primary drop-off points and barriers to advancement. This session will touch on the obstacles, but focus primarily on the solutions that companies can embrace to accelerate gender parity and help all of their best leaders achieve their full potential.
