SIM Women Leadership Summit


       May 4, 2017 - The Drake Hotel - Chicago


While our Summit Council is still finalizing our meeting agenda, here is some information about our program and a few of the speakers we’ll be featuring:

The SIM Women Leadership Summit has three tracks:  Exemplify. Empower. Educate.  As SIM Women has never been focused solely on technology, but rather how to lead and succeed in technology and business, our event’s Exemplify track is for those who have achieved the C-suite and wish to be aware of current trends or look beyond their current role.  The Empower track is targeted toward attendees who are striving for the C-suite who may need insider tips on making that final jump up. 

We also have a strong focus on philanthropy inside SIM Women; hence our Educate track highlights the need for mentoring, giveback, STEM and community outreach.  If we don’t act today, we we’ll have no one to blame but ourselves for the lack of future leaders.

A few of the topics we’ll be highlighting include: 

  • Lessons from the Board:  Board role pursuit and what you need to know when you get there
  • “C” in C-suite Better Mean “Connected”
  • Global Accountability for the Human Quotient
  • Fit Matters: Feeding our Minds, Hearts, and Spirits at Work
  • Innovation as a Service: Motivating Innovation
  • Outcome-based Healthcare: How connecting IT and people equals patient success
  • Philanthropy: Developing Leaders & Engaging Employees
  • Inclusion: Because Diversity is a Dirty Word



Throughout her career as an executive for companies such as Frito Lay, Yahoo!, and KidZania, Cammie Dunaway has earned a stellar reputation as a brand-builder with an impressive list of corporate and start-up successes.

And then along the way, something happened: she began listening to her heart. Two successful years into a prestigious position as Executive VP of Sales and Marketing of Nintendo, Cammie realized that while this job appeared to be the culmination of all she’d accomplished in her career, it was not truly a good soul-fit.

Hoping to share what she’d learned the hard way, she and her executive coach co-wrote the book, “Fit Matters” (publication: May, 2017). In addition to putting her reflections and practical tools into this book, Cammie currently serves on the board of directors for 2 companies, Red Robin and Nordstrom FSB. She’s been featured and quoted in publications such as The New Yorker, USA Today, and Forbes, and is a frequent speaker at organizations such as Stanford, Levis, General Mills, and LinkedIn. Her MBA is from Harvard Business School.
