America’s Top Corporate Leaders Discuss Promoting Women’s Advancement

PINK’s 11th Annual Fall Empowerment Event Brings Together Female Professionals to
Discuss Issues Most Relevant to Modern Working Women

ATLANTA (July 22, 2015) – Little PINK Book, America’s #1 digital platform for the nation’s 70 million working women, today announced that Tami Barron, CEO, SouthernLINC Wireless; Bill Burke, COO, Newell Rubbermaid; Ann-Marie Campbell, President SE, The Home Depot; Linda Galipeau, CEO, Randstad North America and Alison Lewis, CMO, Johnson & Johnson Consumer Family of Companies will offer guidance and lead a discussion on how to move more women into leadership roles during PINK’s 11th Annual Fall Empowerment lunch scheduled for October 19th from 10:30am-2pm at the InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta hotel. Panelists will tell their stories about earning the top job while enjoying the journey, and also the personal price they paid for success. More panelists will be added in the coming weeks.

While most women believe they can create a fulfilling life, they are far less optimistic about creating wealth and significant career advancement. Most women begin their careers aiming for their dream job, but confidence plummets by 60 percent within a few years according to a Bain and Company study. Consider these additional facts:

  • Women hold five percent of CEO positions at S&P 500 companies (Catalyst).
  • An overwhelming majority of women polled (75 percent) are confident they can attain life goals (fulfilling relationships, raising happy children and pursuing social values), yet only 27 percent are optimistic about achieving financial goals (Northwestern Mutual).

How can women move up in the chain of command without sacrificing what matters most? What does women’s empowerment mean for men and women? What can men do, and what can women do in their careers and personal lives to speed up the momentum? How can climbing the proverbial ladder be more fun for women in particular? How can we dance to success? These questions and more will be answered at this year’s event.

Of special note, PINK will more directly include men in this year’s dialogue by adding a top male leader to the distinguished panel. Newell Rubbermaid COO, Bill Burke, has long been an advocate for women’s advancement and will join this year’s conversation to articulate his rationale and best practices.
