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 executives 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.

Much appreciation to our event partners - Smartling and GreenBook.

PARTNERS Diamond Event Partner: Smartling If commerce is driven by words, global commerce is fueled by translation. Left to right, right to left. Buttons, shopping carts, and romance copy. Websites, emails, and forms. This takes teams of people carefully managing each distribution channel for source content, and it is cost-prohibitive for teams to address each supported language. For companies who want to be local, anywhere…everywhere, Smartling has quickly become the Translation Management System of choice. Slack. Pinterest. InterContinental Hotels Group. WeWork. Brands empowering global commerce rely on cloud-based technology and Smartling to greet their customers in many languages. Whether our customers need to quickly translate website content, software, apps, games, or documents, Smartling is making that happen.

In fact, you might say we’re obsessed with helping brands succeed on a global scale while maximizing efficiencies of doing business around the world. At Smartling, our success depends on your success, and we know that our translation software is paramount to any digital transformation.
