Create & Cultivate, the leading digital media platform and event series for millennial women, is joining forces with Disney to launch the first-ever Polka Dot Summit inspired by Minnie Mouse. Through this summit, Create & Cultivate will spotlight modern-day muses who embody Minnie’s key characteristics — Bold, Fashionable, Fun, and Classic. The two-day summit will take place Saturday, January 25th through Sunday, January 26th at the Forme in Burbank, California.
“Minnie Mouse is an innovator and pioneer who continues to inspire past, present and future generations across the globe,” said Josh Silverman, EVP global consumer product commercialization, Disney Parks, Experiences and Products. “We’re honored that Create & Cultivate is recognizing Minnie Mouse and her positive influence with the creators, innovators, and trendsetters of today.”
In 2018, Minnie celebrated her 90th anniversary and received her official star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. A fashion icon since she first burst onto the scene, Minnie has starred in more than 70 movies during her illustrious career and has entertained millions of people around the world, touching hearts and bringing joy wherever she goes.
“We are honored to join forces with Disney to launch the first-ever Polka Dot Summit,” said Create & Cultivate CEO and Founder Jaclyn Johnson. “For decades, Minnie has encouraged every one of all ages to be bold, to be fun, to express themselves through style, and to be classic to the core. Through workshops, discussions, and networking opportunities, our goal is to inspire the next generation of female leaders to do what it takes to make their dreams a reality, just like Minnie.”
The summit will feature keynotes and appearances from Minnie Mouse, Lindsay Peoples Wagner, Aysha Harun, Katie Sturino, Jeanette Ogden, Deepika Chopra, Karena Dawn and Katrina Scott (Tone It Up) and so many more!
Disney tapped Create & Cultivate for the Polka Dot Summit because of the brand’s commitment to empowering female leaders to pursue their passions and create and cultivate the career and life of their dreams.
