Join GBTA’s Dave Hilfman and Amadeus’ Arlene Coyle for the Final GBTA Collaboratory Webinar of 2020
Women in Technology
Monday, December 14 | 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM ET
According to McKinsey & Company, a reputable global consulting firm, companies with the largest representation of women on executive committees perform significantly better than companies with no women at the top. Did you also know that women make 70% of all travel-buying decisions? Therefore, it only makes sense that travel companies would benefit from a leadership team mirroring their greatest consumer. Connect with us to hear Arlene Coyle, a senior executive in travel technology at Amadeus, discuss her career journey and the importance of women securing influential leadership roles.
