LIMITLESS Leaders Summit

The LIMITLESS Leaders Summit is designed to highlight the impact and importance of women leaders in surgical specialties. The program is dedicated to mentoring future female leaders, enhancing public speaking and presentation skills, combating the gender gap in leadership and finances and supporting women in surgery at multiple levels.

Presented in partnership with the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, The Aesthetic Society and the Americas Hernia Society, the LIMITLESS Leaders Summit is supported by Allergan Aesthetics.

The inaugural LIMITLESS Leaders Summit will be a two-day conference held at the Hyatt Centric French Quarter New Orleans in New Orleans, LA, on December 10-12, featuring lectures, webinars, breakout sessions, evidence-based research and social activities to provide an unforgettable educational and networking experience.
