Speakers and featured guests:
Alaina Shearer, our fearless leader, and a total digital nerd, founded Women in Digital in June of 2016 over a mimosa toast with a group of 100 women in Columbus, Ohio. That morning Alaina shared her journey as a woman in digital. From her experience in the radio industry to her move to advertising and digital marketing, she faced sexism and jaw-dropping discrimination all along the way. She believes that in our vulnerability, and in sharing our stories – we can all empower each other and truly be free.
