Get Your 'Women & Worth: Power Forward Summit' Tickets Today

This year’s theme, Power Forward, will inspire, inform and connect attendees to define what it means to be a transformational leader today and then how to leverage their power to support the issues and policies that matter most to women and male allies.

Through interactive sessions we will share strategies and levers to overcome the systemic barriers that are holding women back from access to pay equity, promotion, board positions, wealth accumulation and capital.

Speakers include: Designer Rebecca Minkoff, Saturday Night Live producer Lindsay Shookus, Cornerstone Capital Inc. founder and CEO Erika Karp, Unilever’s head of diversity Mita Mallick, and former NFL star-turned-inclusivity activist Wade Davis.

General tickets and corporate packages now available!
