For a full list of speakers, visit themakersconference.com.

The MAKERS Conference is a global leadership event that brings together more than 600 of the most powerful names in business, entertainment, tech and finance to explore ways to accelerate women’s equality. Each year, this three-day experience provides the inspiration that moves people to action via provocative conversations, compelling storytelling and onstage pledges to advance change.

NOT DONE is our theme for the 2020 MAKERS Conference. It’s a phrase inspired by the suffragettes and the ratification of the 19th Amendment in 1920. It honors all that we’ve tackled in the last 100 years, but also serves as a rallying cry to keep moving forward and finish the job together.

To speak to this, MAKERS has invited entertainers to executives, all of whom are influential leaders, including: author Judy Blume; 11-year old skateboarder and Olympic-bound Sky Brown; journalist and author Katie Couric; lawyer, critical race theorist known for developing the theory of intersectionality Kimberlé Crenshaw; CEO and founder, Ghana Bamboo Bike Initiative, Bernice Dapaah; founder, Well Read Black Girl, Glory Edim; climate activist and Rhodes Scholar Wanjiku Gatheru; skateboarding legend Tony Hawk; attorney, educator and chair of the Hollywood Commission, Anita Hill; former Congresswoman Katie Hill; Chief Operating Officer, The New York Times, Meredith Levien; CEO, Dallas Mavericks, Cynthia Marshall; editor-in-chief, Fast Company, Stephanie Mehta; HuffPost editor-in-chief Lydia Polgreen; author and creator, Gabby Rivera; actor and activist, MJ Rodriguez; author and activist Gloria Steinem; Host of Recode Decode and Pivot podcasts, Vox Media Podcast Network, Kara Swisher, iconic marathon runner Kathrine Switzer; journalist and author, Rebecca Traister; actress, director and activist Olivia Wilde; and CEO and co-founder, 23 & Me, Anne Wojcicki.
