The Senior Leadership Summit (SLS), formerly known as Senior Women’s Program (SWP) is an invite-only professional development event that convenes senior leaders at Grace Hopper Celebration (GHC). This program is for leaders on the cusp of the C-suite, designed to sharpen their core leadership skills, address the varied needs of experienced technologists, and empower women to have greater influence as high-level leaders.

Attendees will cultivate a global network of peers, gain insight from leading women in tech, and develop strategies for effective leadership and organizational transformation.
