Reserve Your Table at the WICT Signature Luncheon

The Signature Luncheon is The WICT Network’s key gender diversity and inclusion platform. Each year, the luncheon showcases thought leaders from both inside and outside the industry to highlight the business case for gender diversity in media, entertainment and technology.

Join The WICT Network and some very special guests this April as they shine a seminal spotlight on the 50th Anniversary of Title IX, the federal civil rights law that prohibits gender discrimination in education. Best known for breaking down barriers in sports for women and girls, this transformative statute applies to all educational programs that receive federal funding, and it benefits both girls and boys. Before the passage of Title IX in 1972, fewer than 16,000 U.S. women participated in college sports; today that number exceeds 200,000, and girls participating in high school sports has grown from 1 in 35 to 1 in 3.

The 2022 Signature Luncheon will take place at The Plaza Hotel New York on Thursday, April 14 at 12:00 pm (Eastern), and will precede the B+C Hall of Fame dinner later that evening.

Space is limited and the luncheons sell out quickly – click here to reserve your table today and join the growing list of table sponsors!
