More than 1,100 Network of Executive Women members participated in 23 hours of learning and 11 hours of networking at the NEW Leadership Summit 2016, the retail, consumer products and services industry’s No. 1 women’s leadership event.

Attendees heard inspiring keynotes by gender equality expert Michael Kimmel and para-athlete and entrepreneur Amy Purdy. NEW members received leadership insights from the senior industry executives during two panel discussions. Women and men at every level learned career lessons at eight breakout sessions.

NEW’s nearly 1,000 regional volunteers were honored at the annual Celebrating Excellence Awards Gala with a red carpet reception; awards banquet honoring outstanding regional leadership teams, the Region of the Year and Regional Leader of the Year; and festive afterparty.

We hope to see you at the NEW Leadership Summit 2017, Sept. 27-29 at the Marriott Marquis in Washington, DC.
