Top companies in Atlanta turn out to support the message of women’s advancement at this Spring’s PINK Event May 4th, 10:30am-2pm

PINK’S 9th Spring Event in Atlanta helps professional women tap into their highest performance

ATLANTA – Blue-chip companies – Your Atlanta Area BMW Dealers, Cox Enterprises, Domino’s, Southern Company, The Coca-Cola Company, The Home Depot, SunTrust, Southwest Airlines, Canyon Ranch, Rigby & Peller, and Chateau D’Esclans – get behind this women’s empowerment event put on by “When it comes to women’s success – creating a beautiful career and a beautiful life – many of the questions women have remain the same but the answers, finally, are different,” says PINK CEO Cynthia Good. “Women aren’t content to settle.”

Panelists include UPS Chief Human Resources Officer and SVP, Labor Relations Teri Plummer McClure; Dunkin’ Brands Chief Financial Officer Kate Jaspon, Cox Media Group EVP Jane Williams and Aaron’s, Inc. Chief Information Officer John Trainor. WSB Anchor Jovita Moore will moderate the conversation at Cox Enterprises Headquarters. The leaders will share their personal success secrets so the more than 200 attending can navigate their own path to “High Performance – Body. Mind. Spirit.”

In addition to discussing how these leaders operate at their highest level while caring for themselves and others in their personal and professional lives, they’ll also address a range of current workplace issues including the #MeToo movement.

Women, still today, are far less represented in top jobs. While women make up nearly half the labor force, only 5.2% of S&P 500 Companies have a woman CEO. Only 11 percent of the top earners are women. Women hold just 21 percent of board seats and fill 26.5 percent of first/mid-level management roles according to Catalyst. “We have a lot of work to do,” says Good.

The signature event on May 4th from 10:30am-2pm will feature an elegant lunch experience and the opportunity to network with some of America’s top business leaders at the beautiful Cox Enterprises Headquarters.

Prior to lunch and the panel discussion, guests will network in the PINK Bazaar beginning at 10:30am. Attendees will have the opportunity to build life-changing professional relationships as they sample and shop with vendors who cater to working women.

Over the last 13 years, PINK networking has resulted in multi-million-dollar deals and the establishment of a foundation for high-profile business relationships.

This year’s event will also support Girl Talk, a nonprofit assisting girls in developing confidence and leadership skills. Over the years, PINK has raised more than $100,000 for nonprofits which support women and girls.

Little PINK Book is an events and digital platform for ambitious career women which hosts Spring and Fall empowerment events.
