Sit With Me

Feb 28th, 2018
5:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Sit With Me was created by members of the National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT), a non-profit coalition that works to increase the meaningful participation of girls and women in computing fields and careers. We invite you to validate and recognize the important role women play in creating future technology by taking a small but symbolic action: sit in a red chair and share your story.

Sitting in the Red Chair:

Paige Lion, Vice President of IT and CIO,  she is responsible for driving the implementation of large scale IT-related initiatives for the gaming company and its 11 casinos located in Nevada, Colorado, Missouri and Iowa. No stranger to the hospitality and gaming industry, Lion previously worked for Caesars Entertainment for 22 years starting as a senior project manager, then market technology manager and regional technology director, before assuming her final position as divisional director of IT and business engagement. She most recently served as vice president senior program manager for JP Morgan Chase in Tampa, Florida. Lion graduated from Louisiana State University with a bachelor of science in quantitative business analysis and minor in computer science and statistics. Paige is passionate about technology, our Las Vegas community and values the what the iconic Red Chair symbolizes. She strives to be a force for women in technology and will sit in the Red Chair to reinforce that women in technology need more seats at the table, that men and women can sit in support and solidarity for technical women and values that one highly visible action can instigate others.
