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.
Click here for more information about our lead-up conversations on September 30 and October 5.
The MPW Summit convenes the most prominent women in the FORTUNE 500, leading female founders, and and leaders from the world of politics, the arts and NGOs.
Fortune is committed to a safe environment at our live conferences. We are following guidance issued by local authorities and the CDC (including local mask mandates), and are taking several additional steps to prioritize participants’ health and safety. Entry requirements include digital proof of full vaccination (submitted through Health Pass by CLEAR) as well as a negative COVID-19 rapid antigen or PCR test result, from a test taken within 72 hours of the start of the Summit. We will announce any other specific information in advance of the event. In addition, Fortune has partnered with International SOS for on-site support in following health and safety protocols.
