Women of the Vine & Spirits Symposium Works for Advancement of Women in the Industry

The 2017  Women of the Vine & Spirits Global Symposium in Napa brought together women and men from all aspects of the industry and from around the globe.
 
Keynote Speaker
Why Women?  The Leadership Imperative to Advancing Women and Driving Male Engagement
Jeffery Tobias Halter, President, YWomen
 
Jeffery Tobias Halter speaking at Women of the Vine and Spirits 2017Women of the Vine & Spirits is the world’s leading membership alliance dedicated to the support and advancement of women in the alcohol beverage industry.
 
Women of the Vine & Spirits fills a void in the alcohol beverage industry. Until now, there has never been a forum for women to strengthen ties through opportunities such as regional networking events, discussion boards, educational resources and the Annual Women of the Vine & Spirits Global Symposium.
 
Women of the Vine & Spirits is the only trade organization to advance and support the careers of women in the alcohol beverage industry while collectively advocating for the industry at large to support gender-diverse teams and talent development.
 
Day two included a speech entitled “Why Women? The Leadership Imperative to Advancing Women and Driving Male Engagement,” by Jeffery Tobias Halter of YWomen, who expounded upon his years consulting corporations on gender relations. He won over the crowd by arriving on stage in a pair of shiny red pumps, underlining the differences in comfort that often exist between male and female fashion in the corporate world. Halter’s encouragement was for women to not only lean in, but for men to stand up as advocates well.
