MAKERS Announces The 2017 MAKERS Conference
MAKERS is excited to announce that The 2017 MAKERS Conference will take place February 6-8, at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif.
MAKERS will bring together hundreds of trailblazing leaders, inviting everyone to #BeBold, elevate the conversation and raise challenges and solutions through action-oriented sessions. The conference will shine a light on issues ranging from violence against women to inclusion of men — ultimately creating a bold agenda that flips the script and creates lasting impact. The speaker lineup will be announced in December.
The announcement was made on Thursday on Bloomberg TV's "Walk the Talk" segment. Dyllan McGee, MAKERS' Founder and Executive Producer, and Samantha Leibovitz, Vice President and Creative Director, discussed the organization's initiatives and goals with host Scarlet Fu.
