Virtual Conversation with Jenny Fernandez, vice president of marketing, executive coach, and start-up advisor

Research shows that women hold 52% of professional and managerial positions but the numbers decrease as women move up. It’s time to shift that dynamic! AMA New York is thrilled to host a monthly virtual series featuring six separate conversations with women who are redefining marketing. Young Mi Park, adjunct lecturer at Columbia University and Rutgers Business School, will interview female marketing experts about how they have navigated their careers and have developed their own leadership styles. At the end of each interview, there will be a 30 minute live “Ask Me Anything” session where you will have the opportunity to ask questions and get a needed boost of inspiration to help start a new leadership endeavor or to take your career to the next level.

Date: Thursday, July 23, 2020; 12 to 1 pm
