At the 8th annual MAKERS Conference in California, more than 300 women came together to celebrate the MAKERS community, a group of women business leaders and allies of diverse backgrounds who are dedicated to accelerating equity in the workplace and beyond.

This year's speakers included founder and Chief Creative Officer of The Honest Company, Jessica Alba; actor, author and producer, Constance Wu; CEO of the Dallas Mavericks, Cynt Marshall; activist Gloria Steinem, and more.

Aptly themed "Making the Future," this year's conference focused representation, racial justice, reproductive rights, workplace equity, what's next for women in Hollywood, and new models for equality in sports.

Here, Jessica Abo has the highlights
