Advice from Ad Age Women to Watch: Trust Your Dopeness

Published on .

If there was one word that came up more than any other at Ad Age's Women to Watch event Aug. 3, it was "badass." The luncheon, honoring 22 outstanding achievers in this year's class, wasn't just an awards ceremony, but a high-energy celebration of the power of women in advertising. Honorees also spoke about women's progress so far and their committment to pave the way for the next generation. Below, some photos capturing the spirit of the event.
