Established by the Bacardi Women in Leadership initiative and female leaders of the hospitality industry, this empowering summit will bring together powerful, inspiring speakers to offer enriching personal and professional educational seminars, energizing Q&A panels, networking opportunities, hands-on workshops, plus much more. Aimed at celebrating and accelerating the empowerment of women, the series will cover thought-provoking topics that span sexual harassment and diversity in the workplace to motivating story sessions on breaking stigmas and workshops on financial planning. Each of these sessions will be led by prestigious speakers, dynamic industry professionals, and leaders in the hospitality industry. 

A five-city tour kicking off in February 2018, the Spirit Forward with Bacardi Women In Leadership empowerment series' main purpose is to bring women and men from all parts of the spirits and hospitality industries together to inspire, celebrate, motivate, and empower each other. By being true champions of individuals across all genders, races, cultures, and geographies, the team behind this series believes all members of the industry and beyond will benefit greatly from the series, further propelling everyone’s success and establishing a fair and equal environment for all.
