More than 7,500 registered guests attended the panels, workshops and round tables, along with main stage keynotes, and performances that filled three days of the third annual Summit, achieving a record reach of 100 million impressions.

The Changemakers of 2020

At The Wrap’s third annual Power Women Summit, we inaugurated the ChangeMakers list, composed of women who not only survived a challenging year, but soared. Many more women could have been included, but we selected an elite group, ranging in age from teens to octogenarians, of executives who said ‘yes’ to stories that mattered and producers, directors and actors who brought those stories to life. And there are also those who influenced in short, spirited, socially distanced ways. We salute women who managed to make an impact in an unforgettable 2020, and who will no doubt continue to do so as we enter a new, and let’s hope much better, year in 2021.


Virtual Marketplace

This year’s Power Women Summit marketplace was an all-virtual social hub where attendees had exclusive access to promotions from female-driven startups and entrepreneurs. There was also a showcase of the Telling Our Stories film finalists, artist exhibitions, book club and playlist recommendations, an original portrait studio, creative activations, and opportunities to support community organizations and charities within the industry.

Vendors at the Power Women Summit included ACE Yoga, bossbabesatx, BümoBrain, Dear Girl Elle B. Zhou, FabFitFun, Grayson, Indagare, Kendra Scott, Love Seen, KP Media TV, Sagely Naturals, Sarah Hendler, Stash Wealth, Things Are Looking Up, The Underbelly, Warriors, and Wondercide.
