Join us in New York this fall where you’ll gain insights and inspiration from a carefully curated group of subject matter experts and thought leaders representing a wide variety of disciplines, including Princeton professor and expert in the intersection of technology and society, Ruha Benjamin, Ph.D.; industry leaders Johnita Due (WarnerMedia) and Lee Schroeder (Altice USA); and internationally-known advocate for girls and human rights, Eglantina Zingg.

Pictured above are the speakers for this year’s Pearls of Wisdom, the closing session of the WICT Leadership Conference.

And we’re delighted to announce the return of a long-established crowd favorite, Pearls of Wisdom, with the stellar lineup pictured above. Styled after the famed TED-talks, with dynamic and innovative storytellers imparting their wisdom in several mini-keynotes, the illuminating session closes the conference on a high note. This year’s illustrious group of speakers will share their personal journeys and life lessons, leaving you energized and inspired as you move forward and Forge the Future!
