FORTUNE MPW Next Gen Virtual
The FORTUNE Most Powerful Women Next Gen Summit is going virtual, and will bring together preeminent rising women in business along with select leaders in government, philanthropy, education, sports and the arts.
Over the last year, the MPW community has discovered new ways of sharing professional and personal challenges, surfacing insights and solutions, and even feeling over a virtual platform. As leaders, we can harness the current atmosphere of change to create a better tomorrow. And we can do it together. That’s why our 2021 theme is “Emerging Stronger.” Already confirmed speakers include Bobbi Brown, Founder and CCO, Jones Road Beauty and Evolution_18; Katie Fallon, Chief Global Impact Officer, McDonald’s; Dylan Farrow, Author and Activist; Jacqueline Fuller, Vice President, Google; President, Google.org; Dambisa Moyo, Global Economist and Author, How Boards Work; Indra Nooyi, Former Chairman and CEO, PepsiCo; Emily Ratajkowski, Entrepreneur, Writer, Actress, Model and Activist; Deb Schwartz, Chief Financial Officer, Cameo; Fidji Simo, Head of Facebook App, Facebook; and Shannon Watts, Founder, Moms Demand Action.
Join us in June and become part of a community that crosses industries and disciplines for new perspectives and a larger view of the world and your impact upon it.
After stepping away from her namesake cosmetic brand after 30 years, Bobbi Brown pursued her passion for wellness—becoming a certified health coach, authoring a new book, and launching the wellness line, EVOLUTION_18. She also has a new make-up line, Jones Road Beauty. We’ll talk with this industry legend on how her passions for wellness and creativity led her back to the beauty industry.
Her intense entrepreneurial drive has taken her on a roller coaster ride, but this serial entrepreneur listened to her instincts and turned her “bathroom odor” idea into a $215 million empire. We discuss her philosophy: How business and spiritual success are intertwined.

Leading with impact is one of the most critical aspects of running a business in today’s world. But what does this really mean for business leaders? And how do companies establish what “responsible” and “purpose-driven” means to them? As we face unprecedented, simultaneous challenges, including a global pandemic, climate change, and profound income inequality, these questions are all front and center for leaders.

How do you approach a moonshot? New AI and other technologies plus changing consumer trends over the past year have made us rethink existing systems for healthcare, transportation, education, and more. How can moonshot thinking help guide us as we reinvent and reimagine products and processes? We hear directly from leaders on the cutting edge.
