SEATTLE, WA (July 25, 2013) – Publicis Seattle hosted Women Who Rock, a panel discussion showcasing six of Seattle’s most successful businesswomen. The event, held at the agency, saw an amazing turnout. The entire office along with friends, clients, and other companies in our building gathered in the agency café for gourmet popcorn, adult beverages and an insightful panel discussion by area business leaders.
The impetus for the event came from a current exhibit of the same name on display at EMP Museum, one of the agency’s clients. Rather than focus on the women who have shaped the music world, Publicis Seattle’s event was a celebration of some of the most successful women running Seattle businesses with a focus on innovation, creativity and culture. The event began with a panel discussion and live audience Q&A and was followed by a curator-led tour of the actual EMP exhibit. Read More ››
