“I’m proud that Interact has reaffirmed its commitment to this organization through sponsorship for a second year.” -Kristen Semple, Account Manager at Interact Marketing
NEW WINDSOR, N.Y. (PRWEB) March 01, 2019
Hudson Valley-based digital marketing agency Interact Marketing will sponsor the Women’s Professional Network (WPN) organized celebration of International Women’s Day on March 5th, 2019 in Poughkeepsie, New York. This is the second year Interact Marketing has been a member of the local networking group, and the second year being a sponsor of this popular event.
Each year, members of the Hudson Valley community are invited to attend this celebration, which features networking, speakers and a silent auction to commemorate International Women’s Day. This globally recognized holiday began in Europe in 1911 to promote women’s suffrage, as well as the right to work and the right to hold public office. Since then, the holiday has evolved to raise awareness for all aspects of gender equality worldwide.
The WPN was founded by Director Lea Bishop as a way to bring women together in the Hudson Valley and encourage collaboration, professional relationships, and an entrepreneurial spirit in the region. “The Celebration of International Women’s Day is the signature event of the Women’s Professional Network because we strongly believe in the awesome talents and accomplishments of women,” said Bishop. “Through this event, we celebrate the contributions of women and draw attention to the fact that there is still work that needs to be done to attain equal human rights for women everywhere.”
The International Women’s Day Celebration is the largest event this networking organization holds annually, with 80 women and men in attendance. The event features a keynote speaker, who is not only chosen to provide valuable career insights to all who attend, but also to reaffirm the annual theme set by the advisory board. This year’s speaker is Robyn Hatcher, owner and CEO of SpeakEtc. who is a communication expert specializing in developing corporate programs and private coaching.
Interact Marketing account manager, Kristen Semple, first joined the networking group in 2017 because of its mission to connect women in business and learn from the monthly educational events. “I’ve made connections with women in the community I might not have met otherwise through the WPN. I’m proud that Interact has reaffirmed its commitment to this organization through sponsorship for a second year,” remarked Semple. “The International Women’s Day celebration is one of my favorite events they organize because of the quality of the speaker and the number of people who attend.”
Kristen Semple and Irina Negru, associate of SEO and sales, will be in attendance at the event representing Interact Marketing.
