Hillary Rodham Clinton to Keynote 2018 Marcum Women’s Forum in New York
Chelsea Clinton, Erin Brockovich and Jeanne Rizzo Return as Speakers for Forums in Four Other Cities
New York City, NY – Marcum LLP today announced that Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will be the keynote speaker at the Marcum Women’s Forum in New York City on September 14.
Chelsea Clinton, vice chair of the Clinton Foundation, who spoke at Marcum’s New York forum in 2017, will keynote this year in Boston on November 12 and San Francisco on December 6. Activist Erin Brockovich also returns to the Marcum Women’s Forum in 2018 to present the keynote address in Coral Gables, FL, on May 31 and Chicago on October 19.
In addition, Jeanne Rizzo, president of Breast Cancer Prevention Partners and a recurring Marcum presenter, will be a featured speaker at the Florida forum.
“We are privileged to be hosting the Honorable Hillary Clinton and to be welcoming Chelsea Clinton, Erin Brockovich, and Jeanne Rizzo back to the Marcum Women’s Forum,” said Jeffrey M. Weiner, the Firm’s chairman and chief executive officer. “This event has become a highlight on our annual calendar as we hear from some of today’s most outstanding women leaders about the pressing issues facing women of all socio-economic backgrounds and their personal perspectives on the continuing challenges to full participation for women in business, public service, healthcare, and all aspects of global society.”
“We conceived the Marcum Women’s Forum in 2016 as a platform for high-achieving women to expand their thinking about what it means to work towards a truly egalitarian society and how we can each play a role in achieving that vision. We had high hopes from the outset, but that it has already expanded to five cities and is attracting speakers of such extraordinary caliber is gratifying beyond all expectations,” said Rorrie Gregorio, national leader of Marcum’s Family Office practice and innovator of the women’s forums.
The Marcum Women’s Forum is a breakfast event geared to high net worth and executive women, featuring nationally prominent women speakers on topics essential to women’s well-being. The conference is presented by Marcum’s Family Wealth Services practice and the Marcum Women’s Initiative. Attendance is by invitation only.

The Marcum Women’s Initiative is a Marcum Diversity & Inclusion program dedicated to the career success of Marcum women. It is one of the many programs that speak to Marcum’s core values and commitment to fostering a culture that is both diverse and inclusive.
