NEW YORK, Feb. 28, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Bizzabo, the world's leading event success platform, today announced the launch of EMPOWER, taking place on International Women's Day, March 8th, 2019. EMPOWER is a conference celebrating women in business, marketing and leadership. Headlining the event's keynotes are The Muse CEO and Founder Kathryn Minshew and Linda Kozlowski, Former COO, Etsy.
Bizzabo recently released its "Gender Diversity & Inclusion in Events Report," which analyzed event data from thousands of events over the last five years. The study showed that nearly 70 percent of speakers at professional events are male. In response, Bizzabo is hosting EMPOWER, where it will give the podium to talented women in leadership.
"There's no better time than International Women's day to gather creative, bright and impressive female leaders in NYC," said Shivina Kumar, Conference Director for Bizzabo's EMPOWER. "This is the perfect opportunity to celebrate female leaders, while addressing dominant issues across industries through in-depth networking opportunities, educational resources and immersive experiences."
EMPOWER's speakers will cover topics such as creating a high-growth culture, modern marketing best practices, the future of experiential marketing, and more. Some of the confirmed speakers for this year's event include:
Mita Mallick, Head of Diversity and Cross Cultural Marketing, Unilever
Maya Prosor, VP, Business Development, Lemonade
Chardia Christophe, Marketing Director, Forbes

"By Launching EMPOWER, we hope to show that there is no reason for the lack of representation that persists on speaker panels across industries," said Alon Alroy, Co-Founder, Bizzabo. "Every event benefits from gender diversity and balance across the speaker lineup, and EMPOWER will spotlight what's really just a sample of the extraordinary women leading the way in business, marketing and so much more."
