MPWomen in New York: the evening in pictures

Fortune Most Powerful Women gathered for a blow-out celebration in May. We kicked off our 2009 MPWomen’s Summit theme, Betting on the Future, with a panel discussion with Google’s Marissa Mayer, Goldman Sachs’ Dina Powell, and Meredith Whitney, the influential bank-industry analyst. Also part of the evening: 32 rising star women leaders from 23 developing countries — participants in the 2009 Fortune-U.S. State Department Mentoring Partnership. For more on the gala, click here.
