The American Gaming Associations’s Global Gaming Women (GGW) program is holding the first annual Power of the Suit Fashion Show on June 26 at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, to learn how dress can deliver confidence in the workplace.

Emceed by Alexia Vernon, founder and director of Influencer Academy, an organization focused on helping women grow their ambition and cultivate their leadership skills, this unique fundraising event is an opportunity for gaming women “to feel empowered, gain self-confidence in their professional image and learn how to choose the best silhouettes for her body type,” according to a press release from the AGA.

Following the interactive fashion show, some of gaming’s top women executives will participate in a panel on women’s personal journeys in the workplace. Moderated by Karla Perez-Larragoite, national director of gaming, Cintas, the panel includes Eileen Moore, regional president, Caesars Entertainment; Staci Alonzo, chief marketing officer, Station Casinos; Jan Carpenito, vice president, Pinnacle Entertainment; and Katie Lever, general counsel and executive vice president at Scientific Games.

The panel will discuss women’s personal career journeys to the top, workplace challenges faced along the way and the present and future opportunities available to gaming women.

All proceeds from Power of the Suit benefit the GGW Charitable Education Fund, a scholarship program for gaming women to further their careers through educational and professional development programs including classes at UNLV, attendance to the MGM Women’s Leadership Conference, attendance to G2E and more.
