A Call to Lead is a world-class event series founded by SAP’s Jennifer Morgan in 2016. It brings together a host of renowned leaders from business, media, academia, politics, and culture who are shaping the future of leadership. Now in its fourth year, the program has expanded beyond an annual discussion (which precedes the SAPPHIRE® NOW and ASUG Annual Conference in Orlando, FL) to include a podcast and other marquee events around the globe.


As President of the Americas and Asia Pacific Japan and the first American woman to sit on SAP’s Executive Board, Jennifer has been named one of Fortune Magazine’s Most Powerful Women in Business and one of Forbes Most Powerful Women in Technology. Jennifer often posits that leaders were far less diverse at the start of her career 27 years ago. Many CEOs were male and most fit a limited number of straightforward profiles. Over the past five to 10 years, the palette of leadership has grown and more styles and profiles have emerged.


A Call to Lead brings those new profiles to life. The event has featured leadership titans including former U.S. Presidents Obama and Bush, former First Lady Michelle Obama, Dr. Jill Biden, former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, corporate officers from Nike, Costco, GE, Accenture, gold-medal winning Olympic athletes, and the world’s most distinguished thinkers.

Will you answer the call to lead?

A Call to Lead is for current and future leaders – for individuals at every level of their career and from companies large and small. Jennifer invites you to join us on this journey and embrace the power, purpose, and responsibility that comes with being a leader in the twenty-first century.


You’ll hear from guests like Arianna Huffington, Gary Vaynerchuk, Simon Sinek, Bobbi Brown, and many others as they share their own leadership journeys and offer practical advice on how you can discover the leader within and shape the future of your own career.
