Bacardi’s annual Spirit Forward Summit is BACK and looking a little different for its fifth year! On Tuesday, October 20, we’re taking the Summit virtual so you can connect to the event from anywhere, from any screen, at no cost to you!

Though the Summit will be online and free to join this year, we’ll once again be showcasing incredible speakers from various industries and backgrounds. The 2020 theme is “Empowered to Be You,” and presentations will look at key topics, like finance, mental health, intersectionality, parenting strategies and more, through the lens of today’s challenges.

We’ll address the current state of emergency for working women. More than 800,000 women have left the workforce since March as a result of COVID-19, and over a million more are considering leaving corporate America. McKinsey will join us to dive into this year’s “Women in the Workplace” report findings.

While we might not be gathering in-person, our goal for the day remains the same as years past: to encourage you to invest in yourself, find opportunities to make your voice heard and leave you feeling empowered

We look forward to seeing you next Tuesday, October 20, from noon to 4 p.m. EDT! Register below (there are a few steps!), and be sure to invite all of your friends, family and colleagues to this year’s Summit – all are welcome to join!
