It is with heavy hearts that we announce to our community the cancellation of this year’s Women in Retail Leadership Summit (scheduled for Oct. 12-14) due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our disappointment runs deep, as it’s the first time that we’ve had to cancel the Summit. However, the safety of our attendees, sponsors, and team have and always will remain our top priority. While we will miss the buzzing ballroom and the empowering energy flowing throughout the hallways this year, our community of women leaders is more engaged than ever. We are wholeheartedly committed to serving our community during these challenging times.

We have a number of things in the works which we’re excited to announce in the coming weeks! Stay tuned for more details on an exciting new virtual event we’re planning for this fall, additional member benefits to connect our membership with job opportunities and industry peers, and so much more!

In the meantime, join us on Wed., July 22 at 11:00 a.m. ET for our next Women in Retail and Total Retail Virtual Lounge event! We’ll be going live with several incredible women leaders, including:

  • Rachel Shechtman, Founder, STORY
  • Katie Echevarria Rosen Kitchens, Co-Founder and Editor-in-Chief, FabFitFun
  • Sarah Tava, Director of Brand Stores, Fjällräven North America
  • Deborah Weinswig, CEO and Founder, Coresight Research

During the complimentary virtual event, we’ll dive deep into a variety of mission-critical topics as well as host a live Q&A with each retail speaker so you can ask your hard-hitting questions.
