Also with us: Pinterest COO Francoise Brougher, Anita Hill, Dick’s Sporting Goods President Lauren Hobart, Uber Head of New Mobility Rachel Holt, Bank of America Vice Chair Anne Finucane, U.S. Representative Tulsi Gabbard, Airbnb COO Belinda Johnson, Caterpillar Group President Denise Johnson, Huda Beauty founders Huda and Mona Kattan, Facebook Vice President Marne Levine, U.S. Senator Martha McSally, U.S. Air Force General Maryanne Miller, Goldman Sachs Partner Dina Powell McCormick, Facebook App Head Fidji Simo, U.S. Representative Elise Stefanik, and senior executives at Amazon, AT&T, Cisco, eBay, Estée Lauder, General Motors, Google, IBM, Johnson & Johnson, Levi Strauss, Microsoft, Netflix, PayPal, Pepsi, Pfizer, Starbucks, Visa, and Verizon.
