Datavision, a premier business intelligence system for the hospitality world, is honored to sponsor the Inaugural Women in Hospitality Technology Luncheon on June 17th at the Minneapolis Convention Center.  Sherry Marek, co-founder and vice president of Datavision was also a member of the planning council for luncheon, presented by HFTP and the HFTP Foundation. 

Co-located with HITEC Minneapolis, this HFTP Foundation luncheon will serve to celebrate trailblazing women in the industry while also supporting its future leaders, with proceeds contributing to HFTP's General Scholarship Fund. The technology leaders will discuss several career strategies such as mentoring, building a support network and the value of diversity in technology professionals. Donna Hale, owner of FEH Consulting LLC will moderate a panel with Kristin Gassick of Enchantment Group, Monika Nerger of Mandarin Oriental, and Kris Singleton of International Cruise and Excursions Inc.
Melinda Gates talked about the value of choosing a single word to bring guidance instead of New Year’s resolutions. In 2019, her word was “shine”. “It’s not about me, it’s about believing that every person has a light inside them. Every single person. If we can turn those lights on—on behalf of women, on behalf of those who don’t have as much as we do, on behalf of minorities in our own country—and stand up for what’s right, we will break through. We’ll all shine. The world will shine.”
“We are honored to support an important initiative for diversity and developing future leaders,” said Marek. “We honor and celebrate our colleagues today. We hope to encourage and see more young women in STEAM careers. We hope to contribute to driving positive change and fostering a culture for everyone to thrive in technology.” 
Datavision also continues to support HITEC as a corporate sponsor for the 20th year. Datavision again sponsors blankets, found in the front rows of the education and sessions. 
Stop by booth 2725 at 3 pm on Tuesday to toast Sudharshan Chary, inductee of the HFTP Hall of Fame.
