In a first for the company, Walker Edison held its first-ever Women of Walker Edison Leadership Summit on October 28.
The summit supported female-owned businesses whether operating in Utah or elsewhere. It kicked off Walker Edison’s participation in the ElevateHER challenge, in which an organization pledges to elevate the stature of women’s leadership, and also marked the launch of the Women of Walker Edison committee.The company executed the event as a completely virtual summit available to all Walker Edison employees, including all genders.
The summit started with a morning yoga class followed by three sessions on topics related to female leadership and women in e-commerce. During lunch, a keynote address focused on the power of storytelling and empathetic listening. A floral arrangement class took place towards the end of the summit.
Everyone registered for the summit received breakfast and lunch from local companies, branded swag including a yoga mat, a S’well water bottle and all supplies needed for the floral arrangement class.
