Krissie Millan and Sarah Sheldon from Rebecca Minkoff were asked about the benefits of being part of Remodista’s Women2Watch program and the community around it. See the whole video here:
Millan and Sheldon talk about the importance of being connected to innovators from diverse backgrounds who are united by the goal of raising one another up. The community offers insights into up and coming players, trends and next waves of technology and strategy that are key to keeping ahead of the curve. Rebecca Minkoff sees Kelly and the Remodista team as a valuable resource to help them stay ahead of the curve.
They comment that being a part of the Women2Watch program naturally lends itself to opportunities like fun events for finding vendors, and connecting with other ecommerce professionals to build a community. It’s a very different environment when there aren’t men in the room. Women tend to problem solve differently than men.
