WithIt breakfast agenda turns focus on impact of women in the industry

HIGH POINT — WithIt (Women in The Home Furnishings Industry Today) is featuring a panel discussion focusing on women in business for its bi-annual Education Breakfast during the upcoming High Point Market.

Held 7:30-9 a.m., Sunday, April 14, “When She Leads: The Impact of Women on Business” will feature four women who are leaders in the home and furnishings industry as they discuss different segments of the industry, including retail, manufacturing, lighting and interior design.

Sheila Long O’Mara with Furniture Today will moderate the panel, which will include Bailee Nebeker, co-owner of American Homestead Furniture and Wallaroo’s Furniture and Mattress; Carla Regina, co-founder and CCO of Regina Andrew; and Joni Burden, president and owner of J Banks Design.

“This event is not just a panel discussion; it’s a celebration and acknowledgment of the formidable influence and leadership of women in the home furnishings industry,” said Tori Evans, CRO of Semi Exact and the 2024 president of WithIt. “Our goal is to foster a dialogue that not only highlights the significant impact of women in business, but also empowers and motivates others to enact positive change in their organizations and communities.”

The event, sponsored by Myriad Software and Nebraska Furniture Mart, is $30 for members of WithIt and $40 for guests. Tickets are available at the WithIt website.
