What past attendees had to say

Accolades for Adweek! Thank you for championing the conversation around women who continue to push boundaries. It is not just about women, but for women—women who are diverse and inspired. Bravo for another fabulous event.

It was inspiring to be surrounded by such a diverse group of talented, passionate people who share a common goal — working our butts off and learning as much as we can to make our workplaces better than they are now.

Upbeat, on-topic and women in the news right now — Women Trailblazers was educational and entertaining with takeaways for my career, personal interests and future goals.

The Women Trailblazers Summit was a great experience that I hope to rejoin. A place where diversity converges to discuss important topics for women in adland.

There was an amazing energy (and synergy) throughout the day! This event is a "must attend" for women to be inspired and empowered to be the best version of themselves!

The Adweek Women Trailblazers event is a fantastic day for professional "me time". I would encourage anyone to take time out to absorb, get inspired and recharge.

The Women Trailblazers event made me feel like these incredibly bright and accomplished women were my colleagues, not just people I look up to. It's so great to see women lifting each other up.

What a cool group of women to hang out with. Totally relatable and inspiring at the same time.

Adweek event are quality events. From the moderators to the speakers, they provide a great experience where you can make meaningful connections.

Adweek's events are what you need to feel inspired and motivated. The Adweek team curates amazing speakers and content and then facilitates the session so that each panel is pure gold. Your day/week will be better for attending these events!
