The Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit features the most prominent women leaders in business, philanthropy, government, education, and the arts. The premiere gathering of its kind, the Summit is by invitation only and features a unique format: no speeches, all lively panel discussions, on-stage interviews, and interactive breakout sessions.
Their theme for 2009 is Betting on the Future. Speakers ranging from Arianna Huffington to Condeleeza Rice will share ideas about the key challenges—technological, geopolitical, and social—that are reshaping our organizations and our world. The program is built around five pillars: Leadership, Innovation, Finance and the Economy, Global Connections, and The Common Good.
On September 15, the Summit is hosting a special dinner in partnership with the James Beard Foundation featuring six female chefs. Each chef will be paired with a biodynamic winery with a woman owner or prinicipal. We are thrilled that Cowhorn’s 2006 Syrah will be paired with a course prepared by Jar’s Chef Suzanne Tracht and share the table with so many other great wines.
