App of the Week: FORTUNE Most Powerful Women Summit
The most powerful women (and some men) in the world will gather together at the beautiful Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel for a three-day affair hosted by FORTUNE. The Most Powerful Women Summit “is the world’s premiere gathering of women leaders in business, government, academia, philanthropy, and the arts,” and did we mention invitation-only?
Created in 1998, Most Powerful Women has evolved into one of the world’s most extraordinary leadership communities, with the “most prominent women leaders in business, philanthropy, government, and education” as members, and events throughout the year “that enable the MPW to use their power wisely and globally.”
The Summit brings together the MPW, so they can exchange “big ideas and learn.” There are no speeches; instead, the Summit is “designed to facilitate energetic and provocative conversation.” Speakers this year include Brenda C. Barnes (Former Chairman & CEO, Sara Lee Corp.), Roz Brewer (President & CEO, Sam’s Club), Anna Maria Chavez (CEO, Girl Scouts of the USA), Lori Goler (VP People, Facebook), Jessica Alba (Founder of The Honest Co.), and many more influentials.
This year’s Summit will feature 4 Conference Tracks – Leadership, Global Business, Growth & Innovation, and Social Good – spread across three days (October 1st – October 3rd). Although the Summit is invitation-only, you can register for the Virtual Summit where you’ll gain insider access to “panelists, Fortune editors, headline speakers, and more.” For more insider access, you can also download the official FORTUNE Most Powerful Women app powered by Mobile Roadie at http://road.ie/fortunempws.
