Now in its 20th year, Fortune Most Powerful Women started as a conference and has evolved into the preeminent community of women leaders in business and beyond. Held at the invitation of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, the Fortune Most Powerful Women International Summit in Montréal will feature one-on-one interviews, panel discussions, interactive breakout sessions and high-level networking. We will gather November 5-6, 2018, at the Ritz-Carlton Montréal, and will convene female CEO’s, thought leaders, entrepreneurs and top-ranking women in the Canadian government to address the enormous potential of women in advancing global economic growth and how women business leaders can use their power and their platforms for good.

Our theme will be Redefining Power: Seizing the $12 Trillion Opportunity.
