Julia Whitelock, a Partner in Gordon Rees Scully Mansukhani's Alexandria, VA office, will speak at the Subscription Trade Association's ("SUBTA") inaugural “Women in Subscription” a virtual event on September 24, 2020.
The event is sponsored by SUBTA, a community of innovators, entrepreneurs, and thought leaders dedicated to subscription e-commerce. “Women in Subscription” is a free virtual event that will feature insights and inspiration from 14 leaders in the subscription e-commerce industry, a virtual expo hall, and networking opportunities for attendees.
