We’re just two weeks away from one of the most impactful women’s conferences in the world. That’s right! March 5–8, more than 1,400 women in corporate America will gather at the Mirage in Las Vegas for the 15th Annual Women of Power Summit hosted by ADP!

For 15 years, BLACK ENTERPRISE has put black women in corporate America on a much-needed pedestal as we highlight their brilliance and excellence in the workplace—from young professionals who are up next to C-suite executives.

This year’s summit is going to be bigger than ever as we celebrate trailblazers Debbie Allen, award-winning actress, director and producer; Gale King, EVP & chief administrative officer at Nationwide; Debra Lee, former chairman & CEO of BET Networks and the CEO of Leading Women Defined Inc.; and Myrtle Potter, former executive vice president & COO of Genentech and the CEO of Sumitovant Biopharma.

We’ll also be paying tribute to the 50 Most Impactful Women in Business Over the Past 50 Years. You won’t want to miss the special 50th-anniversary tribute hosted by Accenture. In the 50th year of BE, it is only right to salute the legends who have transformed every facet of global businesses over the past half-century while simultaneously empowering and inspiring others to do the same.
