Started more than 20 years ago as an annual list in the magazine, Fortune MPW has evolved into an extraordinary leadership community, convening its members throughout the year for wide-ranging conversations that inspire and deliver practical advice. This year’s Summit will explore this new era for both business and leaders, diving into how recent crises have forced leaders to reassess priorities and values, both personally and professionally—and the opportunity and empowerment that comes with that reevaluation. Programming will address some recent difficult and controversial issues head-on, from regulatory crackdown to restrictions on reproductive health, and it will explore how leaders are responding, and what they can learn from each other.
