OUR DARING FUTURE

The most powerful voices in the retail and consumer goods industry will gather at the NEW Executive Leaders Forum 2017 to examine how to leverage women’s leadership to drive extraordinary business results.

This senior-level retreat — for invited guests at the vice-president level and above — will dare you to model change, transform corporate culture and create greater opportunities for industry women.

You’ll get the latest industry insights, illuminate the role of women in our business and foster collective activism through professional networking.
