LOS ANGELES, Sept. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital Diva Connection, the digital industry's first female-only professional association, offers outdoor fitness and a speaker series lunch at their 7th annual Digital Diva Summit. Saturday, September 25 in Santa Monica, California, two hundred female new media executives will come together to discuss work/life balance and breaking industry trends. Rather than congregate in a traditional conference room, the group meets for surfing and yoga on the beach followed by lunch at Monsoon Cafe.

Thomas wanted to create a community where women in digital media could gain industry insights from other female colleagues in a supportive, non-intimidating environment. "This community, and particularly this day, are dedicated to the incredibly talented group of female digital marketers that make up the fabric of this growing industry."
Sara Bordo, Founder of Women Rising and former head of MGM Digital Marketing, will kick off the speaker series with her organization's mission, "Champion women so that they may be inspired to champion others."
Bettina Sherick, Vice President, International Digital Marketing, 20th Century Fox International, will keynote the lunch with a focus on striking a Work/Life Balance.
