Press Releases Optical Women’s Group Sponsors Seminar at Vision Expo West Published 6 years ago on August 4, 2014 By INVISION Staff Share Tweet The Optical Women’s Association’s Connection Series: Connecting Members to Leadership Ideas presents “Seeing (Blind) Spots? Men and Women Working Together,” at Vision Expo West on Thursday, September 18th from noon to 1:30. This “light lunch and learn” panel program features two men and two women from the optical industry who will discuss their business experiences of working together. Discussion points will include “gender blind spots,” false assumptions men and women share about each other, how men and women approach things differently, and solutions for how men and women can succeed together. Based on the OWA book selection, “Work with Me: The 8 Blind Spots Between Men and Women in Business,” co-authored by Barbara Annis and John Grey, the panelists will answer questions on their experiences of working with and for men and women. Valerie Manso, regional vice president, strategic eye care partnerships at VSP Vision Care, will moderate the discussion with panelists representing a variety of work experiences and age ranges. Panelists include: Andrea Gluck, co-president of Eyewear Designs Ltd, and past chair of the Vision Council of America; Bob Colucci, president, independent distribution division, Essilor of America, Inc., and chairman of the Essilor Vision Foundation; Gilda Mehraban, director of brand management, REM Eyewear; and David Duralde, chief creative officer and member of the Board of Directors for Kenmark Optical.
