Women World Changers is the premier, all-inclusive, one-day leadership summit designed to drive critical dialogue on the impact and economics of women, diversity and culture on business growth.

This year our outstanding speaker lineup is headlined by Valerie Jarrett, Senior Advisor to President Barack Obama and Elizabeth Broderick, Australia’s longest serving Sex Discrimination Commissioner (2007 – 2015).
