A line up of powerful industry leaders have been confirmed for the 4th annual WIE Symposium, a global annual conference designed to empower the future generation of women leaders.  Acclaimed journalist and talk show host Katie Couric and celebrated Swarovski Executive Board member Nadja Swarovski will host the two-day event, which takes place over the weekend of September 20th & 21st in New York, with the central theme “The Female Advantage”.

WIE (https://www.wienetwork.org/) launched its first symposium in New York City in 2010 and has since expanded to Europe and Africa.  The conference brings together thought-leaders from the fields of politics, philanthropy, media, fashion and the arts for two days of thought provoking discussion designed to inspire social change and furnish women with the tools to succeed.

The event begins on September 20th with WIE Inspiration Day where topics include “How To be An Authentic Leader”, “What Women Want” and “Women Shaping the News”. WIE Enterprise Day on September 21st will feature discussions such as “Tech: The New Frontier”; “The 3-Per Centers” and “The Rise of the Idea Entrepreneur”.  The event also includes workshops on everything from Executive Presence to Negotiating Skills.
