Association of Women in Events appoints Marie-Claire Andrews to its board
Based in New Zealand, Andrews is the CEO and co-founder of Australasian event app supplier ShowGizmo.
As AWE’s first board member outside of the US, Andrews said she is honoured to help lead the organisation.
“I’ve been passionate about seeing women reach their goals throughout my career. As a woman in the event tech industry, I’ve seen firsthand some of the challenges we all face and am committed to helping break down barriers to success,” she said.
AWE is a US-based association that aims to provide resources and guidance for women in the industry.
AWE co-founder and president Carrie Abernathy welcomed the new appointment.
“The bar is high for board members, as Marie-Claire joins some of the most influential names in the international events industry – but having seen her hard work and innovative ideas during her tenure on our Awards Committee last year, I know Marie-Claire will be a great addition to our organisation,” she said.
