The leadership agenda for women—and the conversations around it—continues to evolve in dynamic ways. The importance of women as drivers of change and leaders with impact is amplified every day across careers and industries. What better way to contribute than to provide a setting showcasing talented professionals and allow for other leaders to examine their own leadership strengths and refine career strategies that move us forward from a position of strength.

Demand for this type of forum for leadership development is greater than ever. Toigo’s Groundbreakers New York event entails more than speakers sharing brilliant ideas; the counsel and tools introduced are grounded in what matters and presented in a way that helps spark new thinking immediately. We also encourage participants to take back key learnings and share internally with their teams.

Groundbreakers presents practical advice backed by inspiration to think and act with boldness. Each year we identify and curate speakers who together offer you a robust, relevant learning experience. Of course, your ideas and suggestions on speakers for future Groundbreakers events are encouraged.

Hear what these leaders find most valuable at Groundbreakers.

Above all Groundbreakers reflects the Toigo Foundation’s mission to foster a spirit of inclusion, advancement and leadership. The magic comes from gathering women leaders in a setting where each can demonstrate the courage and confidence to be candid, to share and to listen. We invite you to be a part of this year’s event as Toigo celebrates our 30th year and become a Groundbreaker!
