Award-winning Entrepreneur in Women’s Leadership, Dr. Cortney Baker, to Keynote Women in Electronics Reception at IPC APEX EXPO 2019

Nov 28, 2018

Dr. Cortney Baker, nationally recognized authority on women in leadership, will speak at the IPC APEX EXPO Women in Electronics reception on Wednesday, January 30, 2019, 6:00-7:00 p.m.

Her keynote, “Closing the Gender Gap and Conquering the Mythical Glass Ceiling” will cover the progress women have made in workplace equality despite the continuing gender wage gap, and the underrepresentation of women in executive positions in various industries. Dr. Baker will discuss the challenges women face when advancing their careers, as well as strategies to implement to get beyond these challenges. Participants will gain knowledge of how their organizations can support and promote high potential women into higher level leadership roles.

Host of the talk show “Conquering the Glass Ceiling with Dr. Cortney” and author of “Unlimited: Conquering the Myth of the Glass Ceiling,” Dr. Baker was named the 2016/2017 Texas Business Woman of the Year. A researcher, author, trainer, and TEDxspeaker, Dr. Baker is the founder and CEO of KidsCareHome Health, a multi-million-dollar healthcare organization in Texas and Colorado. She holds an Ed.D in organizational leadership from Pepperdine University.

The Women in Electronics reception, sponsored by Indium Corporation, invites women in the electronics industry to join their colleagues across the supply chain to network, share ideas, and discuss career experiences.

“We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Cortney Baker to IPC APEX EXPO 2019,” said Alicia Balonek, senior director, trade shows and events. “We are eager to learn her insights on expanding women’s leadership roles and to share our experiences navigating a career in a male-dominated industry.”

The Women in Electronics reception and other special events as well as access to the exhibit hall are free to those who register in advance, a savings of $40 on-site. Attendees who register by December 21 will save 20 percent off registration fees. In addition, attendees who register for the All-Access Package will receive a significant percentage off a la carte options.
