Cipriani South Street | New York

(online/map apps show location as the Battery Maritime Building — that’s the historic designation for the new Cipriani South Street venue)

Practical advice backed by inspiration to think and act with boldness—that’s the Groundbreakers format. Nine years running, it’s become the gathering place for women on the rise.

See the Agenda

Come as You Are

About half Groundbreakers attendees come as part of a team. A growing number of organizations capitalize on the event as part of their in-house training for their women leaders; others as a big thank you to a job well done. A large group are women leaders working in smaller firms or solo eager to network. Some are in career transition, ready to tackle unknown territories. Whatever your purpose and position—Toigo says welcome and get ready for a day (and beyond) of challenging and expanding your view of leadership and yourself.
