For the past few months, Women in Retail Leadership Circle (WIRLC) has hosted monthly virtual lounges alongside its sister brand, Total Retail. These virtual lounges feature live interviews with leading retail executives on a variety of  industry topics.

We created these complimentary virtual events as a way for retailers to connect and gain vital insight about the state of our industry from top leaders, especially in the challenging times in which they’re now operating. Our next Women in Retail and Total Retail Virtual Lounge will take place on June 24 from 11:00 a.m. ET until 2:00 p.m. E.T. The speaker lineup for the livestream event includes:

  • Bahja Johnson, Director, Global Merchandising, Banana Republic;
  • Roz Johnson, Senior Managing Director, Operations, Build-A-Bear Workshop;
  • Kara Goldin, Founder and CEO, Hint Inc.;
  • Leslie Blodgett, CEO and Creator, bareMinerals; and
  • Chuck Surack, Founder and CEO, Sweetwater.

These live interviews will give you insight into how retail leaders pivoted their business strategies as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, how to be a more effective leader during times of crisis, what the future of brick-and-mortar retail looks like in this “new normal,” the value of a diverse and inclusive workforce, and much more! Come prepared for an interactive discussion to help prepare you and your organization to compete in a rapidly evolving retail environment.

Since the interviews are live, attendees have the ability to ask these industry experts their burning questions in real time. Click here to register, and we’ll “see” you next week!
