History

The Swedish-American Executive Women’s Conference (eWc) was launched in 2003 with the purpose of creating a network for executive women in Sweden and the United States, harnessing the collective power of these women’s talents, energy and vision. The annual event, held alternately in Stockholm and in New York, has ever since its foundation grown in importance and significance. In its seventeenth year, the eWc has become a well-established transatlantic event and an important part of leading business women’s calendar. Make sure to mark your calendars today!
