We are delighted to offer you an opportunity to participate in a unique full-day event designed to connect, educate and motivate women in our region. The Metro Women's Leadership Summit will be held at the Newark International Airport Marriott on June 1st and is expected to welcome 700+ participants. The theme is "Climbing the Ladder," and will offer multiple breakout sessions under the banners of Leadership, Finance, Health and Political Activism. The Marriott provides numerous rooms for specific breakouts in each of the four breakout periods; two in the morning and two in the afternoon.

Sponsors are being invited to fully engage in breakouts as panelists or moderators, so we would like you to consider what you might bring to the table, in addition to sponsorship support. For example, a law firm could offer a session unique to women in law, perhaps even providing CEUs for participation. An association could likewise use this forum to provide a benefit to their female members, not only providing an opportunity to network for business development, but to provide educational credits along the way.

Thanks to our partnership with several ethnic women's organizations in the Metropolitan area, diversity will be front and center at this event. The breakout sessions will reflect the interests of all involved, and the Marriott offers easy access to our New York colleagues. We have secured a number of high-profile presenters and have the capacity to add topics and presenters yet to be identified.

We are excited to bring this program to the New Jersey/New York region, and view it as the first of what is sure to become an annual event. The current interest in women's issues lead us to this launch, and we would ask that you demonstrate your support through sponsorship and participation. A list of sponsorship opportunities follows for your consideration, and an early commitment comes with a 5% discount.
