C-Sweet Events

Where Executive Women Can Meet Their Peers.

With a focus on  Fortune 1000 and fast growth companies, C-Sweet produces exclusive educational networking events for female executives.

Our programs feature panels and keynote speakers, both live and virtual.  Our mixers take place in some of the most beautiful locations in the Southern California and New York areas.

The C-Sweet steering committee has actively produced events in tech and finance since 1998.  Our distribution list includes thousands of female executives across industries.

That's our secret. We know how to craft events that appeal to working executive women because we are working executive women.
