Fortune’s Most Powerful Women Summit begins today, and to coincide with that, the magazine has unveiled a new Most Powerful Women vertical. According to Fortune’s editor Alan Murray, the site (Fortune.com/mpw) “will provide information and advice for women seeking success in business.”
In connection with the new site, Fortune has appointed Nina Easton chair of Most Powerful Women International and Jennifer Reingold co-chair of the US MPW Summit. Easton will continue in her role as Washington columnist and editor-at-large; Reingold will continue as a senior editor.
“The success of Fortune depends on our ability to identify and nurture strong communities of people who look to us for information, inspiration, enlightenment and education on particular business topics across a variety of platforms including newsletters, web sites, mobile phones, magazines and live events,” wrote Murray in his memo announcing the vertical. “The expanded Most Powerful Women franchise is a powerful model for how we will grow and thrive in the future.”
