Thank you to the more than 5,500 women and men who attended the 26th Annual PBWC Conference on March 10, a day that was marked by a sold-out crowd, a wealth of active networking and social media engagement, a vibrant Expo Marketplace, and most of all the inspiring stories of our power-packed speaker lineup.
Thank you to Leeza Gibbons, Leymah Gbowee, Sallie Krawcheck, Carolyn Buck Luce, and the many talented seminar speakers and thought leaders who made yesterday’s event both invaluable and unforgettable.
Thank you also to our incredible sponsors and media partners.
Most of all, we would like to extend our gratitude to PBWC Founder, Congresswoman Jackie Speier, who continues to guide and champion our community as we pursue a more equitable workplace and world.
Your personal and professional commitments
At the conference, PBWC continued its close partnership with the Clayman Institute for Gender Research at Stanford University. Live polling at the conference allowed attendees to collectively make personal and professional commitments for the future.
To help transform your commitments into actions, Clayman’s sociologists are now compiling support materials, resources and information to be posted shortly on our newly redesigned website, pbwc.org. Soon, we will unveil an “Equity Dashboard” of several key statistical measures related to women in the workplace.
