[Past Event] Women & Worth Virtual Summit: The Importance of Powering Forward Now More Than Ever

The world has changed dramatically since our Women & Worth Power Forward Summit in March 2020—from the COVID-19 pandemic and its devastating effect on the global economy to the murder of George Floyd and the ensuing worldwide rallying for social justice—which is why we’re reconvening this September to not only pick up where we left off but to also explore how life has changed over the past six months and discuss why now more than ever it is important that we power forward to create a more inclusive and equal economy for the benefit of everyone.

Join Worth over three days for a live online summit to learn, share, support and connect with attendees and speakers who’ve forged ahead during this tumultuous time and continue their work to impact change, lead with purpose and overcome the systemic barriers holding women and minorities back from access to pay equity, promotion, board positions, wealth accumulation and capital. Now, more than ever, the issues of equality and inclusiveness need to be addressed, and through interactive panels and sessions, Worth will share strategies, resources and calls to action so that we can continue to power forward as we gear up for 2021.
