Grab your cowboy boots and join the team at Women Leading Travel & Hospitality for a breakfast and networking roundtable event on Dec. 7 in Dallas!

If you’re in a director level or above position within the travel and hospitality industry, join us at the Adolphus Hotel, where Iris Diaz, chief marketing officer of the Dallas Mavericks, will kick off the event by discussing her career path to becoming the first Latina and youngest person to hold an executive position with the NBA organization (and you could stick around that evening to watch the team in action at a home game!).

Following Diaz’s keynote, an expert panel of executive women in the travel and hospitality industry will join Jennifer Thornton, founder of 304 Coaching, for a wide-ranging discussion on both business strategy as well as executive professional development. The panelists include:

  • Joy Rothschild, chief human resources officer, Omni Hotels & Resorts;
  • Stephanie Chung, chief growth officer, Wheels Up;
  • Rhonda MacAndrew, senior vice president of human resources, Greyhound Lines; and
  • Jodie Brinkerhoff, vice president of innovation, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.

Register now to secure your spot for this can’t-miss event (Women Leading Travel & Hospitality members can attend for free!).
