At Audi of America, we're committed to cultivating and promoting a culture that helps everyone reach their potential. We call it Drive Progress. In an effort to support the advancement of women in business, we're joining again with the Forbes Women's Summit, which showcases women of impact leveraging their platforms to lead positive change.
Jeri Ward, senior vice president and chief communications officer at Audi of America, will join the annual conference as a featured speaker on June 19 in New York City. We're excited to be a part of a conversation that connects visionaries, builders, and innovators who are shaping the new way forward and driving progress within their respective arenas.
Jeri will speak on a panel of fellow industry leaders on the topic of how companies can help create more dynamic and inclusive workforces. Panelists will discuss topics from harnessing the power of multigenerational talent and helping to close the STEM gender gap with their own experiences as women in business as well as the importance of training and development.
Audi is committed to the development of female talent within the company and beyond. Last year, Audi collaborated with Forbes and the NYU Tandon School of Engineering to create the first-ever #DriveProgress Grant for aspiring female STEM students. Through a program developed for the conference - the Idea Incubator - more than 30 female university students gathered for a day of ideation, discovery and awards.
