Women’s Summit Accelerates the Leadership Conversation

Earlier this year, we hosted our third annual Women’s Summit, which brought together 130+ female leaders from across industries and geographies to discuss issues impacting women.


The event kicked off with a one-on-one interview featuring McDermott partner, Christina Martini (IP-CHI) and renowned chef and restaurateur Stephanie Izard—the first woman winner of Top Chef. Other topics discussed at the Summit, ranging from holistic leadership to navigating the #MeToo era to driving intentional diversity, left attendees feeling empowered and armed with ideas. “I really liked that the Summit was about leadership first and gender second,” remarked one participant.


We’re grateful to all of those who participated for sharing ideas and engaging in candid dialogue that helped to shape an unforgettable day.
