Ad2 Women’s Leadership Panel Recap

Posted on: 01/27/16, 7:53am

Recipe for an empowering Thursday night:

 

Many valuable life lessons were preached from The Women’s Club stage last Thursday, January 21st.  The Ad2 Women’s Leadership Panel was moderated by Nora McInerny Purmort with panelists Jill Gutterman, Mahtab Rezai, Sue Kruskopf, Rosemary Ugboajah, Margaret Murphy and our very own Co-Founder and COO, Emily Pritchard. Key takeaways included, “Say yes to wine and no to drugs,” and go for the top-of-the-line executive membership at Costco. Seriously.

In all sincerity, the event catered to millennials just starting out in their careers, ad industry vets, and everyone in-between. Topics were mostly focused on equality, feminism, and leadership, but covered much more surface area. The panelists provided a glimmer of hope to all as they revealed their roadmaps to success: Failure is an incredible teacher, have passion, and it’s always the right time to be brave.

Some more notable nuggets of wisdom:

What we found shocking:

Here we are, one week later, still reminiscing (daydreaming) about such an incredible event. One quote in particular we can’t seem to get out of our heads (occupying the Twittersphere) is from the Margaret Murphy:

All in all:

The inspiring words of wisdom absorbed from the night= priceless.
