DaySmart Software to Host Women in Leadership Conference in Ann Arbor

September 18, 2018

ANN ARBOR, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 18, 2018--DaySmart Software, the leading provider of business management software supporting small business growth, is hosting a Women in Leadership Conference on October 17 in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The event will serve as a forum for women to discuss challenges in the workplace associated with gender bias and pay inequality and hear from experts on best practices for overcoming those obstacles to become successful business leaders.

In the United States, women make up more than 50 percent of the population, yet represent less than five percent of Fortune 500 CEOs. DaySmart – which provides powerful software solutions and support to thousands of entrepreneurs operating in the salon, spa, pet grooming and tattoo industries (85 percent of whom are women) – felt compelled to address this issue by creating an evening dedicated to helping aspiring female entrepreneurs and business leaders thrive. In addition to networking opportunities, attendees will hear from three prominent women in business:

Engelina Jaspers – an author, speaker and former marketing executive for HP and Flex who will offer strategies and tips for becoming a business-first leader Cindy Schipani – a professor at University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business who will address practical approaches for narrowing the pay gap Trey Boynton – Duo Security’s Diversity and Inclusion Manager who will provide insight on understanding strategic positioning in workplace cultures

“It is an incredible opportunity to be bringing together a like-minded community of individuals who are dedicated to supporting female entrepreneurs and business leaders,” said Jeff Dickerson, CEO of DaySmart. “Our corporate mission is to facilitate the growth of aspiring business owners, and we are looking forward to discussing that in more detail with our exciting lineup of speakers and the event’s attendees next month.”

The Women in Leadership Conference will take place at Zingerman’s Greyline in downtown Ann Arbor, Michigan. The conference will begin with passed appetizers and drinks at 6:30 p.m. ET, and sessions will run from 7:00 – 8:40 p.m. ET. To register for the event, please visit here.
