In February 2014, we held the inaugural MAKERS Conference where we gathered prominent leaders and innovators from corporations, not-for-profits, and government organizations committed to women's and working family issues for a 48-hour action plan to help defined the agenda for women in the 21st century.

At The MAKERS Conference, we shined a spotlight on the people who are working to move us forward, including groundbreaking women profiled as MAKERS, men who “get it” pushing for change, and leaders in their industries from non-for-profits, corporations and government organizations on board to help set the agenda for gender equality in the next 50 years.
