2013 Global Women's Executive Summit

17 June 2013 - 18 June 2013

More than 100 women executives and general counsel gathered at the Global Women’s Executive Summit on 17 and 18 June 2013 in New York. At this event, guests engaged with their peers, who impact business, politics, and philanthropy around the world. Participants engaged in dialogue about global business challenges and opportunities; compliance in an era of increased regulation; growth, change, and adaptation in a competitive global marketplace; the challenges of protecting privacy, data, and personal and institutional reputation; and mentoring the next generation of leaders.

The day-and-a-half program began with an onstage conversation anchored by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, author, and investment banker Sheryl WuDunn. The second day comprised of topical panel discussions (“Women on the World Stage” is available to watch online), a keynote lunch address, and ample time for networking.

The Summit offered candid dialogue and sharing of lessons learned among some of the world’s leading women.
