Where will your brand go in the digital space? What does branding mean in the digital era? And what should every brand be focusing on in 2019? We'll dive deep into issues facing today's brands during this engaging meetup with a rock start line up of panelists (TBA).

«I recently attended my first Women in Digital meet up and it was unlike any other 'networking' event. While every person in the room was there in a professional capacity, there was an undercurrent of shared values, shared struggles, and shared desire for change.
It was a powerful experience to see women band together to raise each other up in a way that only women can. I can't recommend joining Women in Digital enough. This is a professional community that feels like the home we never knew we needed, but have always been seeking.» — Alaura Weaver, Copywriter + Content Strategist
