San Francisco is to host the first-ever vegan women summit (VWS) next month, in a bid to ‘inspire, educate, and empower future and rising female leaders on how to bring compassion to their career and industry’.

Guest speakers for the one-day event include Alissa White-Gluz, Miyoko Schinner, Lisa Feria, Jasmine Leyva, Dotsie Bausch, Leah Garces, and ‘many more’.

The summit will also feature a catered lunch from Vegan Picnic and samples of vegan products made by women will be given out.

‘Excelling across the world’

VWS founder Jennifer Stojkovic told VegNews: “As a vegan leader in the tech industry, I’ve been fortunate to meet countless vegan women excelling across the world, ranging from CEOs and Olympians to celebrities and activists, and have often wondered how we can better galvanize our movement to empower more compassionate professionals.

“Through the creation of VWS, I am excited to celebrate the many achievements of our leading vegan changemakers, inspire rising and future leaders, and launch the beginning of a global movement for vegan women everywhere.”

The summit takes place on Saturday, February 1 at the WeWork Waterfront Plaza in San Francisco, from 10am-3:00pm PST.
