Open to all that support our mission to uplevel the female economy!
This is a virtual panel discussion open to all. The Zoom link will be available after registration.
Female Strong’s CEO Roundtable speaker series brings together high-profile women business founders and CEOs for an informal discussion about their lives, careers, and what they love most about what they do. In February, we hosted a panel discussion with women in the food industry. In September, we’re focusing on powerful players in the advertising space!
We are excited to announce that our CEO Roundtable: Women in Advertising panel will be moderated by Christy Hiler!
Christy Hiler is the president and owner of Cornett, an independent, full-service advertising agency proudly based in Lexington, KY. As owner, Christy has helped raise the stature of the small agency to national and international recognition. In 2022, she was included in Adweek’s Women’s Trailblazers List. That same year, the agency added Busch Light and Legoland to its roster of clients, and Cornett won Gold at the National Addy Awards. In 2021, Ad Age listed Cornett among its best small agencies, and, for the past three years, the Kentucky Chamber has listed Cornett as one of the Best Places to Work in Kentucky.
In addition to driving Cornett’s vision and dramatic growth over the years, Hiler is passionate about seeing more woman-owned ad agencies. To help increase the number of women and non-binary owners she created Own It, a podcast and initiative recognizing female ad agency owners about how they came to be.
She is also one of the founding members and leaders of BLAC—an independent agency internship collective designed to bring more young Black people into advertising, preparing them to survive, thrive and lead.
Outside of Cornett, Hiler is a mother to four wild and wonderful kids and volunteers at Common Good, Step by Step, and other Lexington area organizations dedicated to helping young people excel and achieve their goals.
