For those in our community who joined us last week at the 2022 Women in Retail Leadership Summit, you know it’s difficult to find the words to describe the experience, this community and its impact. Some of the sentiments we’ve heard since we wrapped up the festivities in Miami include life-changing, incredible, fulfilling, and powerful, to name a few. However, instead of me telling you all about the Summit, let me show you. Below are a few of the messages we’ve seen on LinkedIn in the days since the event:

  • “My experience at the WIRLS summed up in a few words … phenomenal, inspiring, powerful, encouraging, positive, and so full of life! What an experience to share with so many incredible women!!”
  • “WOW! I’ve been struggling to come up with one word that would sum up my experience this last week at the Women in Retail Leadership Summit, and I keep coming back to WOW! I had heard great things, but had no idea what I was in for.”
  • “‘Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.’ Dr. Seuss. The Summit has been my favorite ever since I attended my first many years ago, but 2022 has been THE BEST YET!”
  • “One of the best weeks of my life. Thank you!!”

We’re not done soaking up the Summit magic! Check out this photo gallery showcasing some of the best moments from the event (and see if you spot yourself among the radiant faces of our community).

Women in Retail Leadership Circle members will also have access to on-demand recordings from the 2022 Summit! Members can log in and watch here. All videos will be posted by the end of this week, so check back to watch your favorite speakers again, and again, and again.

Last but not least, our Summit attendees were grooving along to the music! We’ve put together a playlist of all of our music from the event so you can listen anytime, anywhere and relive the experience. Find our music collection in the 2022 Summit playlist on Spotify.

If you missed out on this year’s event, make sure to save the date for the 2023 Summit! We’ll be gathering in Phoenix from April 17-19, 2023 at the Arizona Biltmore, A Waldorf Astoria Resort. More details will be announced soon. We can’t wait to see you there!
