WINiT The WINiT Welcoming Committee Orlando, Fla. — WomenInTravel (WINiT), a network of women and men providing career development services to women in the travel, meeting, event management, and exhibition management industries, celebrates the success of its second Annual Summit this past July at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Orlando, Florida. WINiT’s Annual Summit, which was a sold-out event, brought together its members to showcase and celebrate the impact WINiT has had on the advancement of women in the various industries it serves.

Executives representing key industry organizations shared success stories and led provocative discussions on both industry topics as well as women in the workplace. Featured speakers included Doug Anderson, president and CEO of Carlson Wagonlit Travel; John Snyder, global president and CEO of BCD Travel; Norma Corio, CFO of American Express Global Business Travel (GBT); and Jennifer Hill, former CFO of Merrill Lynch.

“We were thrilled to have hosted the second Annual Summit. The event marked the anniversary of the launch of WINiT, which is an exciting milestone. Most importantly, it brought together the women and men who comprise the organization and who, together, have already been a part of driving measurable progress for women in our industries,” said Dawn Repoli, WINiT’s director of program management.

WiNiT’s Premier Donors, who contribute $100,000 or more, include: American Express Global Business Travel, American Express, Concur/Steve Singh, and Delta Air Lines.
