The summit features keynote speakers such as Sarah Thomas, NFL’s first female official and Barry Melancon, President and CEO of American Institute of CPAs & CEO of the Association of International Certified Professional Accountants. It also will include an in-depth and unique conversation with Lindsey Vonn, the most decorated female in the history of Alpine skiing.
