Welcome to your home page for Wnet’s Career and Leadership Summit – the payment industry’s premiere event designed for women in leadership positions.

Over 150 women attended the 2017 Career & Leadership Summit in Atlanta, Georgia!  The program was jammed with experts, industry leaders, learning exercises, and networking.  Attendees gained new skills that prepared them for their next promotion, crossroad, challenge, and opportunity.

"The diversity in the speakers this year was fantastic and hope to see that again next year."
-Melissa Rock, Head of Operations, VP, US Cards and Merchant Solutions

This year’s agenda featured Pulitzer-Prize winning author Stuart Diamond, former mayor of Las Vegas Jan Jones Blackhurst, executive coach Kathy Green, and professional leadership experts Shelley Row and Patti DeNucci. 

This year’s Summit also featured the return of the Wnet Power Panel, female c-level leaders from across the payments industry and the famous and fun Wnet Silent Auction, along with networking sessions and other educational sessions designed specifically for women in payments.
