10:15 AM – 11:15 AM Co-sponsored by: The Glass is Broken: Women Executives Give Their Perspective on Today’s Marketing Environment Whether or not you agree with her, there is no doubting that Sheryl Sandberg set the agenda for 2013 with the publishing of her book ‘Lean In’. All over the globe, women in business has been a topic for discussion not just in the Business pages, but also in opinion leaders, lifestyle pages and even the front pages. Many feel women are being urged to work harder, longer, and faster. But actually, it’s not about longer hours, early mornings, and no personal life – we all need to work more efficiently, effectively… smarter. And in 2013, the proliferation of data in business allows us to do just that. DMA2013 adds its own voice to the debate with a powerhouse panel of women executives that will examine the current marketing landscape and how this “Big Data Revolution” will continue to permeate all aspects of our lives. The real-time access that marketers have on consumer behavior and buying patterns through the data has fundamentally changed the way we do business. It allows us to make intelligent decisions, to monitor the decisions we make, and to be truly accountable for them. Data does not recognize age, race or gender.
