March 24, 2021 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm PDT

March kicks off Women’s History Month! Join the AMASF as we shine a spotlight on women who are leading marketing innovators in the Bay Area.

In celebration of Women’s History Month, our esteemed panel of senior women marketing leaders will share how they are navigating their professional lives and the “new normal” with both purpose and vigor.

Take part in our next virtual event on Wednesday, March 24th as we uncover:

  • How these experienced marketers are moving forward from a challenging year and what new opportunities they are focusing on
  • How they are redefining workplace culture and championing people at all levels and backgrounds within their organization or with their customers
  • What skills and experiences have propelled their own careers and what key differentiators they are looking for in aspiring marketers

Join the AMA San Francisco and fellow marketing enthusiasts to hear, firsthand, their secrets to success as they face today’s marketplace challenges, and how women, in particular, are blazing a trail at this significant point in our history.
