What will our future look like?

2020 is a year of great consequence for women and equality. We’re in a position of incredible power to lead the way to a better tomorrow for everyone. And we must be intentional about how we leverage that power — and activate it for the good of all. Roll up your sleeves. We’re building the future.

The Riveter Summit: Women Building the Future is your platform for information, inspiration and — most importantly — activation.

The program

Join us for a day and a half of programming as we work together to discuss today’s critical issues including:

A group of conference attendees sit and converse. In the center is a woman speaking and holding a notebook.

Making Gains

Power and money are inextricably linked. The gender pay gap and paucity of funding for female-helmed businesses are well-documented in America. And yet, women make most consumer purchase decisions. These realities affect everyone, not just women. In the Making Gains track, we’ll explore power and money from a few angles.

  • Negotiating to Lead
  • Money is Power. Make More.
  • Voting With Your Wallet: Companies That Live Your Values
A woman in a conference audience listens intently to the speaker.

The Power of Women

When women share their stories, change follows, whether it impacts one person or yields societal shifts. The panels in this track feature women sharing the bold moves they’ve made in the name of building the future.

  • The Importance and Power of Women Telling Their Stories
  • The Pivot: Our Careers, Our Messages, Our Lives
  • Rebranding Motherhood at Work
In a crowd of women wearing lanyards, one woman holds up a microphone to someone off-camera.

Strength in Numbers

We’re here to stoke change for ourselves, for our communities, and for the future. The coming year will demand intentional action, and we need to be prepared. The panels in this track will explore ways to plan and activate for change.

  • Advocating For Yourself (and Others)
  • Voting Rights
  • Building an Organizing & Giving Strategy
