The Leadership Investment® is home to a thriving and supportive community of corporate women and men. We offer a variety of networking events, webinars, signature events and career-building volunteer opportunities.

This year our flagship event, the Women’s Success Forum, will take place on Friday, October 23. With two keynote speakers and four break-out speakers offering perspectives on everything from team motivation to community engagement, the event is sure to provide terrific opportunities for networking and growth.


Jennifer Siebel Newsom -  Opening Keynote Speaker

Our morning keynote, Thought Leadership: Inspiring Change, will address the current climate of American media, gender stereotypes, and their harmful effects on our lives and on corporate cultures. Presented by CEO, filmmaker and advocate Jennifer Siebel Newsom, the presentation will explore the advantages of greater equality in the workplace and highlight how it can benefit individuals, organizations and the economy as a whole.

Newsom wrote, directed, and produced the 2011 award-winning documentary Miss Representation. As a result of Miss Representation’s powerful impact, Newsom launched The Representation Project, a non-profit organization established to awaken people’s consciousness, inspire individual and community action and ultimately, transform culture. When she’s not running The Representation Project and making documentaries, Newsom serves as a Global Advisory Board member of the Dove Self Esteem Project, a co-chair of We Day California, and a commissioner on the Girl Scouts’ Healthy MEdia Commission.
