E2k President, Michael Olmstead and Senior Producer, Erin Olmstead worked with Chris Wayne and Associates to direct the first Wall Street Journal women’s conference at the Four Seasons Hotel in West Palm Beach, Florida. 

The three day event brought together over 120 women leaders from various professions to generate action plans for increasing the opportunities for women in business, government and other professional areas. The discussions were grounded in a new report produced for the Wall Street Journal by McKinsey & Company entitled, “Unlocking the Full Potential of Women in the U.S. Economy.”
The event opened with a gala dinner conversation with former Supreme Court Justice, Sandra Day O’Connor; the CEO of Morgan Stanley, China, Wei Sun Christianson; and the President of the World Bank, Robert Zoellick.
The event utilized the Priortizer facilitation software, developed by long-time e2k partner, Futureview, Inc. Each breakout group focusing on different business areas, e.g. Law, Media, Technology, Government, Healthcare, and Finance, used Prioritizer to generate four key recommendations related to the advancement of women in their sector. These were then shared with the full conference and further consolidated and prioritized in order to generate the five most important areas that will be published in the Wall Street Journal.
