As you are no doubt aware, the ongoing outbreak of COVID-19 is interfering with life as we know it. The fast-moving situation has forced us to make some hard decisions, and it is with a heavy heart that we must inform you that we will be canceling this year’s Fortune Most Powerful Women International Summit in London, originally scheduled for June 1-2, 2020.

As you can imagine, this decision has been a difficult one for us. Like you, we look forward to this annual event as an opportunity to connect and network with inspiring (and powerful!) women from all over the world. We fully intend to continue to engage with our MPW International community throughout the year—and to seize this opportunity to find new and innovative ways to do so. Stay tuned for more information about upcoming events and new ways for you to connect with other members of our MPW International community, and do keep your eye on our Broadsheet newsletter in these uncertain times for regular updates.

We also want to remind you about our annual conference in the United States, the Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit, which takes place September 30-October 2, 2020, in Laguna Niguel, Calif. The Fortune Most Powerful Women International community will also be gathering in Asia on December 8, 2020, at the Ritz-Carlton in Singapore.
