Last Dance Productions is thrilled to assist Barefoot Events in producing this historic event.

In celebration of this year’s 50th anniversary of women being admitted to the two-year MBA Program, Harvard Business School, under the umbrella of the Culture and Community Initiative, is undertaking a series of special events, programs, and exhibitions that explore the past, present, and future of women leaders in business and civic life.

A major part of the celebration will be the W50 Summit, a two-day program focused on accelerating the advancement of women leaders who make a difference in the world. Taking place at the School, the Summit program will begin on Thursday, April 4 at 11:00 a.m. with an address by Harvard University President Drew Gilpin Faust, and conclude on Friday, April 5 with remarks by HBS Dean Nitin Nohria and a lunch with HBS students. There will be an optional morning program on Thursday, April 4 from 9:00–11:00 a.m.

Highlights will include a presentation of the results of the alumni survey, discussion of a new case on the history and future of women at HBS and in business, workshops, panel discussions, and screening of a new documentary about the experiences of women on campus and after graduation. This event promises to be an exciting opportunity to join with fellow alumni and HBS faculty to reflect on where we have been and where we are now, and to set an agenda for the future.
