Since its inception in 2010, the espnW: Women + Sports Summit has evolved to become the leading event of its kind. More than just a conference, the Summit is an experience that harnesses a spirit of collaboration among the brightest minds in the sports industry.

Each year, industry leaders come together at the Summit to focus on driving change and opportunity for women in sports. With an overarching goal of developing actionable outcomes each year, thought-provoking content, and invigorating sports activities in a beautiful setting, the Summit is truly in a league of its own.

In 2014, we will once again gather under the theme of Making an Impact. More than ever, the Summit sparks conversations and ideas that make a difference for women + sports. We'll do so this year through compelling keynotes, panel discussions and W Power Talks, all in our unique group setting.

Join us at this year's Summit.
Make an Impact.
