Encouraging the next generation of women leaders to move into the C-suite through access to today’s top leaders.
More than half of all management, professional and related occupations are held by women, yet women account for only five percent of the CEOs of S&P 500 companies today. The KPMG Women’s Leadership Summit is forging paths for the next generation of women leaders to move into the C-suite through high-impact leadership development content, networking, and access to today’s top leaders. KPMG today announced the 66th U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and IBM Chairman, President and CEO Ginni Rometty will share their career experiences as women leaders at this year’s Summit on June 28th.
In its third year, the KPMG Women’s Leadership Summit convenes highly accomplished leaders in the worlds of business, politics, sports, and the media to share strategies, insights and lessons learned from their personal journeys with the next generation of women leaders nominated by their CEOs to attend, which includes representation from more than 50 Fortune 1000 companies.
“KPMG is deeply committed to increasing the number of women leaders within our organization and the broader marketplace through initiatives like the KPMG Women’s Leadership Summit,” said KPMG U.S. Chairman and CEO Lynne Doughtie. “Having more women in leadership roles enhances business performance across nearly every metric.”
Hosted on-site during the week of the 2017 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, the KPMG Women’s Leadership Summit will feature distinguished speakers and panelists including:
