Leading Ladies Of… Defense

2022 Global Virtual Summit

Leading Through The Changing Landscape 

If you joined us at our 2021 summit, you’ll understand why everyone’s talking about us: phenomenal content, stellar role models and a global audience – all built on our foundation of brave hearts, bold voices and big change.

The 2022 summit is not to be missed – we plan to smash through our previous attendee glass ceiling of 500 women and allies, save the date and join us as we deliver this forum designed to expand female leadership in the industry from the ground up.

At our half-day virtual event on March 17th 2022 you’ll have the opportunity for professional development and networking with Leading Ladies and Allies from across the globe.

Join us to hear:

  • Leaders from Fortune 500 companies & SMEs
  • Perspectives from all levels
  • Voices from multiple continents
  • allyship

Although Leading Ladies Of… events focus on challenges and strategies for women of diverse backgrounds, it is inclusive and open to all who strive to advance in their career while supporting the advancement of women in the industry.
