THE MAKERS CONFERENCE
Every year, MAKERS gathers hundreds of leaders and executives for The MAKERS Conference, a three-day event that sets the agenda for advancing women in the workplace and in the world. Produced like a live documentary, the sessions explore a wide range of topics, from unconscious bias to policy change, sports to workplace harassment, education to entertainment and beyond. Discussions prioritize actively solving problems, rather than simply talking about them. Past participants include Bozoma Saint John, Gabrielle Union, America Ferrera, Kimberlé Crenshaw, Tokata Iron Eyes, Mj Rodriguez, and Jenny Yang. The 2022 MAKERS Conference will be held October 24-26 at the Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach Resort. Click HERE for more information about tickets.
