About Women’s 100

What: The 2021 Women’s 100 event was a five-part series of hour-long networking sessions for women working with corporate disclosure & the securities laws, including ESG topics and shareholder engagement. Each session revolved around a unique topical theme – see the 2021 agenda below.

Where: Women’s 100 events are typically held on both coasts. In 2021, the sessions were held in a nationwide virtual format – with breakout sessions grouped by geography.

Who: This exclusive event is by invite only due to limited capacity. Attendance is kept at approximately 100 women for each coast (including speakers). This keeps the event intimate.

Invitations are made based on factors that promote a diversity of age and job responsibilities, with an effort to feature a rough split between in-house and law firm participants, with some investors mixed in as well.

Cost: $295 per person – there is a “no refunds” policy.

If you have not received an invitation, and would like to be put on the waitlist, fill out the form. If you have any questions, please contact our Marketing Event Manager, Victoria Newton, at VNewton@ccrcorp.com.
