Think differently and develop a leading mindset.
Who Should Attend?
The Women in Industry Summit is open to women at all levels within the industrial supply channel. The event offers educational opportunities for personal and professional development along with formal and informal networking designed to build your connections within the industry.
Why Should I Attend?
As we emerge from work as we’ve never experienced it before, our industry, member companies, and their people have changed. We’re moving at a faster pace, making decisions differently, and asking new questions. If we don’t continue to think and manage in new ways, we risk business stagnation and the potential loss of good people.
The ISA Women In Industry Summit is designed to help equip you and your team to think differently and to develop a leading mindset that will benefit your current and future leaders. We are redefining what it means to be a leader regardless of title or position.
