The Network of Executive Women (NEW) Cincinnati, a nonprofit organization focused on advancing women, growing business and transforming the workplace through the power of community, is commemorating its 10th anniversary in 2018. To complete the celebration this year, NEW Cincinnati featured keynote speaker Dr. Steve Robbins, the author of “What If? Short Stories to Spark Diversity Dialogue,” and creator of a new video training series called “Inclusion Insights.” Dr. Robbins spoke to more than 700 male and female consumer product and retail leaders at the NEW Cincinnati 2018 Fall Learning Event at JACK Casino on October 25, 2018.
NEW was launched nationally in 2001 and the NEW Cincinnati Region was established in 2008 by leaders at The Kroger Co. and Procter & Gamble. Since then, the NEW Cincinnati Region has grown exponentially, reaching over 13,000 consumer products and retail industry leaders and college students over the last 10 years.
The Kroger and P&G executives that established NEW Cincinnati believed it was a critical initiative to further the advancement of women in the consumer products and retail industry. The Cincinnati region is focused on promoting the advancement of women and providing a network of support, training and development to women and men.
With a successful 10th anniversary celebration held throughout 2018, NEW Cincinnati is centered on continuing its growth to foster and embrace a community of women in leadership.
