IGT Senior Sales Manager María Florencia Bobbio and Farmacity Human Resources Director Mariana Ibero will be the leading speakers at this year's Global Gaming Woman LatAm edition. How do you think their message will contribute to women in the gambling industry considering, for instance, that Ms. Ibero has no experience in the sector?
Their careers reveal an interesting combination of talent, technical abilities and virtues as well as adaptability. They will share with other women in the sector their experiences as motivational mentors and leaders. These are motivational talks that aim at a paradigm shift, seeking to strengthen the role played by women in the gambling industry. This event allows us to demand equal rights of women and men in the business world.
We want to thank IGT who will serve as Sponsor Platinum and Estudio Kifki for their support to this noble cause
The event will go the following way: first, we will briefly go over their professional and personal history. They will then analyze the hardships they faced during their careers and what issues or people helped them to overcome the crisis. They will explain how they managed to keep a balance between their personal and professional lives, addressing the diferrent perspectives about gender matters in the industry and the plans to improve that situation. It is very importat to count with the point of view of a successful woman that comes from a different industry to learn from her experience.
Having said that, the event aims at getting to know the new female leaders that are building future paradigms, sharing experiences, inspiring and understanding that we are all here to improve the industry and that if we work as a team all the hardships can be overcome or we can at least deal with them the best way possible.
