Meet the Speakers: Matrice Ellis-Kirk, Rebecca Acuña, and Steve Demetriou

They’re among the 19 leaders participating in D CEO’s annual Women’s Leadership Symposium, to be held virtually on June 23.

D CEO’s popular Women’s Leadership Symposium returns this month with a full-day, jam-packed event. Now in its sixth year, the program will run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., with engaging keynotes, panel presentations, Q&A sessions with speakers, and networking opportunities.

Matrice Ellis-Kirk, managing director of Ellis Kirk Group, and Rebecca Acuña, director of government affairs at PepsiCo, will kick things off with a fireside chat on the day’s theme, “A Matter of Value.”

Later in the day, Jacobs Chair and CEO Steve Demetriou will offer a keynote, “Without Change, There Is No Change: Empowerment, Transparency, Action,” then join a panel with Thear Suzuki, global client service partner at EY; and Bill Munck, managing partner with Munck Wilson Mandala, on “Change Starts at the Top: Lessons from the C-Suite.”

Also on tap for the day are presentations on “The Value of Human Connection,” “Paving Your Own Path and Discovering Your Value,” “Seek Progress Over Perfection,” and “Knowing Your Value(s): “To Thine Own Self Be True.”

The online platform for the virtual event also allows for three targeted networking sessions and a breakout session over lunch.

Ticket options are $50 for general admission (includes all programming for the full-day event), $75 for gold admission (includes all programming plus added networking opportunities and breakout sessions, list of attendees, and a virtual swag bag), and $100 for platinum admission (all of the above, plus a VIP swag bag mailed to your home before the event; deadline for platinum purchases is tomorrow, June 11).
