Unleash Your Inner Disruptor: Leading with an Entrepreneurial Edge [June 17 | 11am]

  • Forget the traditional leadership playbook, today's market demands bold leadership. Hear more about the essential qualities needed to thrive in a dynamic environment - qualities that define today's most successful leaders: those with an entrepreneurial mindset. Featuring Ipsos North America CEO, Mary Ann Packo, this panel conversation welcomes executives who hold the entrepreneurial spirit near and dear, we’ll talk about identifying growth opportunities, embracing calculated risks, and learning from stumbles.

Beyond the Bleachers: Men Championing Women’s Sports [June 18 | 4pm]

  • Our daily 'Manel' invites male executives to the stage to touch upon topics they’re rarely asked about. Women's sports are finally receiving the spotlight they deserve, but the conversation has primarily focused on female perspectives. However, men are increasingly activating their brands and interest in this space—investing in further elevating women’s sports and athletes. This panel of male executives, including Ipsos’ Jamie Stenziano, will dive into the power of sports—its influence on girls and women—and the exciting business opportunities at hand.

Beyond the Stereotypes: How Gender Diversity in Engineering & Insights Drives Marketing Innovation [June 19 | 2:30pm]

  • Engineering has long been seen as a male domain, while women tend to dominate insights organizations. This is changing, however, with improved outcomes across functions emerging. Ipsos’ Philip Ryan joins a panel discussion exploring the positive impact of a more gender-balanced approach in engineering and insights. Hear from female leaders who thrived across these traditionally siloed fields and can share the evolutions they are seeing.
