WOMEN BACKING WOMEN
WHAT ABOUT THAT SPECIAL PLACE IN HELL?
“There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.” — Madeleine Albright, Former U.S. Secretary of the State
Everyone remembers Madeleine Albright’s ripple causing statement, igniting the conversation on what it means for women to support women. It is not uncommon to hear the names or see the faces of successful women, but it is less common to hear about the women who lifted and supported them — often behind the scenes and not so obvious. The 18th annual, SACCNY 2020 Executive Women’s Conference will do a deep-dive into ‘Women Backing Women’ – knowing that behind all successful women is a tribe of other women who lifted them up and had their back. By opening the floor to all participants, we will hear from both the known and not so known, but equally important, and with insight and lessons to share and learn from. How does effective support manifest itself and how can we together help more women support more women – and grow that impact? eWc delves into instances and insight on mentorship and intra-female support, with important dialogue to perpetuate and grow robust support network. On our own, we can be successful, together we have an impact.

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!
