Have you ever looked at a successful woman working in the
alcohol beverage industry and wondered
“How did they get there?”
Our “Women to Watch” webinars will bring these role models to your screens where you will get the opportunity to hear from their experiences navigating their career paths, the insights they have gained, best practices they can share, and how they used their WSET qualifications to their advantage.
Role models and mentors are extremely important as we navigate our own career paths and it is a cornerstone of Women of the Vine & Spirits to provide access to these role models! By learning from one another and sharing of best practices and advice, we can all thrive!
