… kicks off this coming Monday, Oct. 11. Can you believe it? We certainly can’t! Our fabulous team here at Women in Retail Leadership Circle has been working tirelessly around the clock to make this the best event our attendees will ever experience! And while the Women in Retail Leadership Summit is always special, we understand it will be especially important this year as it will likely be the first in-person event many of the women in our community will be attending since the pandemic started.

For those of you attending, this year’s Summit will focus on holistic leadership. We’ll touch on how women executives can bring their whole selves into their roles to become more effective leaders. We’ll address the balance of mind, body and spirit in both your personal and professional lives. There will also be fantastic pop-up shops, one-to-one professional development coaching, financial coaching, a wellness center, fun activations, networking galore, a Women in Retail dinner soiree, and tons of swag and surprises.

The speaker lineup, as usual, is inspiring. Here’s just a sampling of those scheduled to speak:

  • Ellen Latham, Co-Founder, Orangetheory Fitness
  • Stacy London, CEO, State of Menopause
  • Paige Thomas, President and CEO, Saks OFF 5TH
  • Alexandra Wilkis Wilson, Co-Founder, Gilt and GlamSquad
  • Michelle Kelly, CEO, Lilly Pulitzer
  • Molly Langenstein, CEO and President, Chico’s FAS
  • Christiane Pendarvis, Co-President, Chief Merchandising and Design Officer, Savage X Fenty

For those of you out there who can’t make it to Miami for this year’s Summit, don’t fret! We will be covering all of the great speakers and presentations on social media and in this e-newsletter. Full videos of most of the keynote speeches will also be available, but only to members. (If you would like to view them on-demand, register to become a member of the Women in Retail Leadership Circle today!)

All in all, we just can’t wait to get the Summit started next week! I hope to see you all soon!
