Mayor London N. Breed invites you to be INVINCIBLE, a Women’s Summit.

 

A celebration of the power, strength and resilience of San Francisco’s extraordinary women, be INVINCIBLE will empower women to take action around their health, families, careers, and communities.

About 

Hosted by San Francisco Mayor London N. Breed and San Francisco City Administrator Naomi Kelly

be INVINCIBLE will inspire women to recognize and activate their personal power and collective strength, provide tangible takeaways and build diverse coalitions to create real solutions to challenges – all in an environment that is inviting, inspiring, and energizing.

Not simply a networking event, be INVINCIBLE will offer a unique and energizing experience for more than 1,000 participants, with inspiring keynotes, dynamic break-out sessions and exhibits, and performances by some of the Bay Area’s most talented artists, singers, dancers and poets.

The Summit will also feature a resource fair with four “Neighborhoods”:

  • Health and Wellness
  • Financial Empowerment
  • Leadership and Civic Engagement
  • Lifestyle

Each Neighborhood will have its own stage with speakers, demonstrations, and how-to workshops on each topic.

This Summit is for all women and their allies. be INVINCIBLE welcomes everyone, from leaders in business, government, or non-profits, to stay-at-home parents, single mothers, young women, and others for whom a conference or summit is not part of their daily experience. Diversity of audience, speakers and exhibitors is a high priority.

The Experience 

Hosted by Mayor Breed and engaging 1,000+ diverse and multi-sector participants, the goals of be INVINCIBLE are to:

  1. Inspire women to recognize and activate their personal power and collective strength;
  2. Provide practical and tangible takeaways for all participants to improve their health, advance their careers, grow their networks and identify ways to engage in and give back to their communities; and
  3. Build diverse coalitions and create cross-sector approaches to improving women’s health and economic equity in San Francisco.

 

The Audience

Many sector-specific conferences are designed for corporate, government or nonprofit leaders but few are designed to bring diverse constituencies and stakeholders together. be INVINCIBLE will draw leaders from all sectors, as well as stay-at-home parents, single mothers, young women and others for whom a conference or summit is not part of their daily experience. We want to provide an environment that is inviting, inspiring and energizing for all. Diversity of audience, speakers and exhibitors is a high priority.

 

The Experience

Not simply a networking event, the Summit will offer a unique and energizing experience for attendees:

Inspiring keynotes - In addition to Mayor Breed, powerful, high-profile keynote speakers will anchor the day in the morning and at lunch. Attendees will find time and space for informal networking before and after the ballroom/keynote moments.

 

Dynamic break-out sessions - Before and between the opening and lunchtime keynotes, attendees will experience a high-quality, carefully curated resource fair organized into four “neighborhoods”: Health & Wellness, Financial Empowerment, Leadership & Civic Engagement and Lifestyle. Neighborhood stages with rotating programs will feature inspiring speakers, demonstrations and how-to workshops designed to provide attendees with the opportunity to gain new skills, access new networks and leave with practical insights and tools. The stages will also feature performances by some of the Bay Area’s most talented artists, including singers, dancers and poets.


Interactive exhibits - Dozens of activations, stations and tables are where participants will find inspiration and action in equal measure. Exhibitors are an extension of the neighborhood stages, bringing unique and valuable resources to enhance attendees’ health and economic well-being while building leadership skills, expanding networks and supporting women entrepreneurs.

Exhibitors

 

Each Neighborhood will feature a stage with speakers, demos, and workshops, along with dozens of activations, stations, tables and interactive exhibits.

Health and Wellness: Health is about a strong body, mind and spirit. Exhibitors in this Neighborhood recognize the strengths and unique needs women have in taking care of our whole selves. Exhibitors also know that healthy women raise healthy families and are the cornerstones of healthy communities.

Financial Empowerment: Women’s economic well-being is the foundation of preventative health care, access to educational opportunities and choice when it comes to career, family and community engagement. Exhibitors in this Neighborhood know that women are savvy consumers, often the family breadwinners, and that women are working hard to overcome historic barriers to building wealth and assets.

Leadership and Civic Engagement: When women lead, families and communities thrive. Leadership and civic engagement are dynamic and can take many forms, from running a company or serving as an elected official to organizing a community to address a critical issue or being an informed voter.

Lifestyle: This is the neighborhood where our health, financial well-being and leadership capabilities intersect. Exhibitors in this neighborhood know that women are whole human beings, committed to our families, our careers and our communities, AND that we like to have fun, to look and feel our best and to do so in ways that don’t break the bank.
