WIRe In Color Virtual Event: Authentic Leadership in Action
An authentic company ethos begins with leadership that’s invested in the cause. With many companies seeking to heed the call of D&I, it’s imperative that the messages you send match internally-driven initiatives that center the lives and livelihoods of your employees. In this WIRe in Color webinar we’ll redefine authentic leadership with a panel of Market Research professionals — some senior-level, some up-and-coming — and touch on the ways companies can actively accommodate those driving the culture they hope to foster on a more equitable and supportive path to success forward.Learn More
Fight gender parity from behind and beyond the podium by joining our database!
WIRe’s 50/50 initiative and speakers database aims to support women from across the various roles and industries that make up the broader research landscape by matching them with the market research industry’s best events – and work closely with conference organizers to promote a 50/50 gender split on stage and beyond.
You can join us in the fight for gender parity, behind and beyond the podium, by adding yourself to our database via the online form here. Be sure to share with your colleagues, coworkers or other great women speakers you’d like to recommend. Together, we can uplift the voices of women in Market Research!
Are you a conference or event organizer interested in improving the gender ratio on stage?
WIRe’s speaker database gives you access to the top female minds in research, ready to speak at your event! Our database highlights speaking experience and subject matter expertise. For a copy of “The List,” please reach out to Kristin Luck.
As part of our 50/50 Initiative, Women in Research has crafted this set of guidelines to help industry conference organizers recruit a truly diverse on-stage presence and improve speaker gender ratios at events. When reaching out to procure speaker applicants, to evaluate papers and studies, and to craft agendas, this checklist will drive gender parity at research events.

CX Talks was conceived by Carlos Pimenta and Mark Michelson in 2016 after hosting a CXPA event at Macquarium for CX Day. During this event, 10 speakers gave 10-minute Ted Talks style presentations to an audience of around 100 attendees. Following this event Carlos had the idea to bring together various associations in Atlanta who represent different CX disciplines, including UX, CRM, Martech, store design, VOC, research, mystery shopping and more. Working together, Carlos and Mark invited 14 associations to meet and discuss planning what is now known as CX Talks. The goal for CX Talks is to bring together a variety of professionals from a wide variety of CX practices to meet, learn and share what each of us know about the growing CX profession.
