Realizing Your Power

Started as a list, FORTUNE MPW has evolved into the world’s most extraordinary leadership community, convening the preeminent women in business—along with select leaders in government, philanthropy, education and the arts—for wide-ranging conversations that inspire and deliver practical advice.

This year’s Summit will explore this new era for both business and leaders. We’ll dive into how recent crises (pandemic, geopolitical tensions, climate change, supply chain woes, etc.) have forced us to reassess our priorities and values, both personally and professionally—and the opportunity and empowerment that comes with that reevaluation.

We want to strike a collaborative tone and recognize there is tremendous power, opportunity and innovation that comes with rethinking old ways and pushing for change, as long we pull others up along with us. And we will address some of the more recent difficult and controversial issues head-on, from regulatory crackdown to restrictions on reproductive health—how are leaders responding, and what can we learn from each other?

Fortune is committed to a safe environment at our live conferences and events. We are closely monitoring guidance issued by the CDC and all local and state authorities, and working with our partner, International SOS, regarding specific precautions and requirements. To participate in Fortune live conferences and events, all attendees, speakers, and other participants must be up to date with their COVID-19 vaccinations (meaning they have received all doses in the primary series and one booster, when eligible). Proof of up to date vaccination status will be required.  Accommodations will be made for attendees in accordance with the law.


As we discuss "Realizing Your Power," themes addressed at the summit will include:

  • Change – It’s happening faster than ever. How do we react quickly, and make sure our orgs and teams are on board with these shifts?
  • Collaboration – How do we work cross-industry to come up with new solutions and new business opportunities?
  • Community – As we rise above, how do we make sure we are pulling others up with us? How do we account for and factor in all stakeholders and make sure we are taking care of all employees?
