“Deborah is the perfect speaker for our first event,” says Susan Carpenter, RVWA chair. “Her engaging, humorous and entertaining message is sure to inspire our members as we officially launch the RV Women’s Alliance. As we have worked to get this new group off the ground, it is clear that there are many men and women in our industry who identify with the need to elevate the roles and contributions women make to the RV industry.”
The RV Women’s Alliance was formed last fall with the mission to bring together a diverse group of extraordinary women and men from across the RV Industry who, through social and educational programs, mentorship and networking opportunities, are inspired and empowered to realize their individual potential, enhance their career experiences and create opportunities for the next generation of women leaders.
