The 2020 World-Changing Women’s Summit is fast approaching (January 29 – 31), and we really hope to see all of you unstoppable women there. In addition to the magical venue (wine country, anyone?) and the unparalleled opportunity to network and connect, the World-Changing Women’s Summit is also a place to hear inspiring stories and reflect upon them amidst the rolling hills of Sonoma. This isn’t your average women’s conference — you can peruse through the event agenda here.

Just like the inaugural Summit in 2018, Conscious Company Media has pored over its vast network to handpick a powerhouse group of women-identifying leaders to share their journeys navigating conscious-business issues.

What do we look for in a speaker? Presence, vulnerability, relatability, an underrepresented perspective … and a certain je ne sais quoi.
