Groundbreakers Summit FAQs

General Questions

Who attends Groundbreakers?

Is the audience finance-only professionals?

The core of the audience work within the finance industry – however professionals from all industries are welcome. Groundbreakers attendees also include women from other industries, including media & entertainment, consulting, consumer goods, foundations & endowments and more.

Is there a virtual component to this year's summit?

Can (do!) men attend Groundbreakers?

We’ve had a few men attend in the past (their firms/employers were sponsors); we also welcomed men to the program as speakers. The content is focused on women and leadership advancement, so the audience profile attracts women.

I’m traveling to the event. Is there a preferred hotel?

The Foundation has not reserved a room block for this event. However, the summit is being held at The Pierre Hotel in New York City.

I love the line-up and am interested in having one of the speakers present at our company—is that possible?

Reach out to Toigo and we can provide an introduction to the speaker and/or the individual’s agent.
