Heidrick & Struggles was once again a proud partner of the 2020 Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit, which took place virtually from September 29 to October 1, 2020. This year’s theme was “Rising to the New Reality.”
The 22nd annual summit brought together female leaders across business, government, academia, philanthropy, and the arts for inspiring conversations, one-on-one interviews, panel discussions, and interactive breakout sessions.
This year, Heidrick & Struggles hosted a panel titled “The board’s role in leading through crisis.” Bonnie Gwin, vice chairman of Heidrick & Struggles’ CEO & Board Practice, joined the discussion as a distinguished panelist.
