Women Take the Lead

Many exceptional women in marketing have rightfully claimed seats at the table. A select few, we’re proud to announce, will share their stories and expertise at the IHAF Women’s Leadership Summit on April 29.

Held virtually this year, our bi-annual spring leadership conference is an inclusive, executive-level event. All in-house agency leaders are invited to join us online for a lively day of inspiring keynotes and connections.

Our Women’s Leadership Summit speakers are influential business leaders from top-performing in-house agencies. Their sessions cover everything from empowering the next generation of innovators and creators to stimulating social change:

• World traveler Harriet Tolputt from the International Monetary Fund will kick things off with lessons learned on global leadership.

• We’ll hear how Tracy Stallard of Anheuser-Busch InBev’s draftLine—the team that won Best of Show at the latest IHAF Awards—keeps a highly diverse team united and focused.

• From there, Sheryl Adkins-Green of Mary Kay Inc. takes the stage with inspiration on empowering female entrepreneurs from the C-suite.

• And, we'll go behind the scenes with Patti Cocciolo from Cisco Systems, Inc., IHAF’s reigning In-House Agency of the Year, for a look at her tech megateam.

• We’ll wrap with Hilton’s Jennifer Cortner along with Beth Johnson of RP3, and a fireside chat on using strategic communications expertise for social change.

Given the caliber of speakers and sessions on deck, the IHAF Women’s Leadership Summit is shaping up to be a can’t-miss event for advertising and marketing leaders tasked with in-house agency excellence.

Like all IHAF events, the Summit wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of our sponsors. They offer tools, talent and support services that help in-house agencies thrive! Stay tuned for a live presentation from our premier event sponsor, Extreme Reach, and don’t miss the other partners we’ll feature from now through the big day.
