We want to see more women in the C-suite, and a session at next week’s CommerceNext event in New York City will help push us towards that goal. The session, which is being moderated by our very own Melissa Campanelli, co-founder of WIRLC, and features panelists including Meera Bhatia, chief operating officer, Fabletics; Sarah Rasmusen, chief customer officer, Lands’ End; and Calanthia Mei, vice president of partnerships, Fast, will offer leadership advice and takeaways tips that can be implemented by both current as well as aspiring leaders.

The panel will explore strategies for career growth and leadership, how the current environment has reshaped leaders, and retention and hiring strategies in this competitive job market. Bring your questions and leave inspired for the next step in your career journey. You can register for next week’s CommerceNext IRL here.
