"If you are a corporation, a person or an organization and you are not involved, it’s like being an individual and not bothering to vote. You have power? Use it for the good." - Susan N. Herman, President, ACLU

The fourth annual Women’s Leadership Forum at AppNexus was a day filled with important conversations and action-oriented advice around the issues of diversity and inclusion. 

Throughout the event, attendees heard from some of the most accomplished people in business, technology, media, and the non-profit world, including Freedom to Marry founder Evan Wolfson, Pinterest head of diversity and inclusion Candice Morgan, and ACLU president Susan N. Herman. Guests received valuable insight into the struggles for equality that permeate our society, as well as actionable tips for strengthening their careers and creating change within their own organizations and communities.

In a new short documentary, we take you behind the scenes. With exclusive interviews with some of our keynote speakers and a highlight reel of WLF’s best moments, the video gives a unique look at how those on the front lines of social justice and equality inspire others to take action, build diverse workforces, and harness joy as a powerful form of resistance.
