Fortune’s annual Most Powerful Women Summit takes place Oct. 9–11, 2023, at the Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel in Dana Point, Calif. This year’s theme: Rising to the Occasion. You can follow along virtually here. The livestream player will be added to this post the week of the event.
Started as a list, Fortune MPW has evolved into the world’s most extraordinary leadership community, convening the preeminent women in business—along with select leaders in government, philanthropy, education, and the arts—for wide-ranging conversations that inspire and deliver practical advice.
The last few years have tested business leaders in unprecedented ways, from the COVID-19 pandemic to a social and racial reckoning on a global scale. Despite these challenges, many businesses boomed and the pace of innovation only accelerated. What’s more, business leaders stepped up, realizing the power of their platform in new ways. Now, as we face economic headwinds, how do we make sure that we don’t lose sight of the progress leaders have made in embracing a more holistic and empathetic approach to leadership, of taking all stakeholders into account, and of recognizing the power of their platform to bring about change? How do we rise to the occasion—and the challenge—that 2023 presents?
