About Us

The Massachusetts Conference for Women, one of four sister conferences in the Conferences for Women network, held its first Workplace Summit in 2015. The inaugural event hosted 1000 mid-level leaders (women and men) across all functions and industries. With a focus specifically around gender partnership, the Summit armed managers with tools to help them advance gender equity and create workplaces that work for everyone.

Since its inception, Workplace Summits have also been offered in Pennsylvania and California. Over the last seven years, the agenda has expanded beyond gender partnerships to address equity, intersectionality, DEI, communication, innovation and many others. Some past speakers include: Brené Brown, Celeste Headlee, Adam Grant, Cindy Robbins, Vernā Myers, Wade Davis, Shawn Achor, Cy Wakeman, Zainab Salbi and Abby Wambach.
