FORTUNE MPW Next Gen 2022

Realizing Your Power

This is a new era for business—and for business leaders. Recent challenges have pushed us to reassess and reevaluate the impact we have on our customers, our colleagues, and the world around us. To recognize that we have the power to affect change. And to embrace the responsibility and opportunity that comes with that realization. That is why our 2022 Most Powerful Women theme is “Realizing Your Power.”
