Meet Dr. Candace Warner, one of our Women’s Panel speakers at JumpCon, our inaugural Digital Transformation Summit. This panel will discuss diversity in the workplace.

Join us in Nashville, Tennessee, aka Music City, on October 24th, 2019 to hear speakers like Dr. Warner talk about sales, marketing, and beyond.

Why JumpCon: The Digital Sales Transformation Summit

JumpCon is a one-day event bringing together sales leaders, marketers, and business owners from across the country to talk about growing businesses through digital sales and marketing transformation.

Why Dr. Candace Warner?

Dr. Candace Warner is the CEO and founder of People3, a benefit corporation that provides diversity and inclusion training to businesses, non-profits, and government sectors across the country. 

As you can imagine, she’s been busy — diversity, inclusion, and equality in the workplace have been hot topics lately. Dr. Warner is leading the team at People3 to bring knowledge to businesses about how to facilitate a healthy culture where all people – regardless of race, religion, or sex – have a seat at the table.

As a sociologist, academic researcher, trainer, and curriculum designer, Dr. Warner does it all. She holds a Master’s degree in Sociology and completed her Ph.D. in Public Administration & Policy. She’s a member of several professional groups in Tennessee and beyond and has accumulated numerous awards for her instructional skills and contributions to sociology. With almost two decades of experience under her belt on understanding diversity and cultural demographics, she’s an ideal speaker for our Women’s Panel at JumpCon. 

Getting to know Dr. Warner

We asked Candace three questions to get to know her better beyond that impressive bio. Here’s what she told us.

One special thing about you that is not in your bio?

I’m a singer. I’ve been singing in bands and also solo on occasion since I was a teenager. I currently sing backup vocals for a local artist (about two-three times a year). 

What would you love to chat about with conference attendees other than work?

Traveling–where have you been, where do you want to go, what do you want to learn or what did you learn when traveling–about the culture, the society, the people. I love learning and talking about all things travel and culture!

Why speak at JumpCon when you could be anywhere in the world?  

I’m very passionate about the intersection of race, gender, and economics so I love nerding out over these data points and talking about how the macro/big-picture view connects to women’s everyday lives and work and economic and workplace experiences.

Meet Dr. Warner in person and hear her talk all things diversity, inclusion, and cultural competency at our JumpCon Women’s Panel. Grab a ticket here.
