May 8, 2018, 7:15 AM EDT

Hosts: David Adler, Beth Kormanik
Guests: Courtney Muller, Angela Scalpello

In this episode of GatherGeeks, David Adler, C.E.O. of BizBash, sits down with Courtney Muller of Clarion UX and Angela Scalpello of the Scalpello Group at the SISO C.E.O. Summit in Las Vegas. The group explores the inequality of women among the leadership in the trade show industry, noting that while women make up two-thirds of the industry, they hold just 10 percent of C-level positions. They share solutions for tackling the problem—for both men and women—and note the economic advantage of a more diverse workplace.
