What are you doing this week? We at Marie Claire have some pretty cool plans: We're hopping on a private JetBlue flight in New York City with 100 women business leaders and we're taking off for San Francisco, where we'll meet up with the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow, Drew Barrymore, Tracee Ellis Ross, Bethany Mota, and Tyra Banks for a pop-up conference at the W Hotel.

The most powerful names in tech, media, fashion, and policy will spend Monday and Tuesday jumping from the East Coast to the West Coast and back again, networking across industries and hearing panel discussions about being a boss, being a brand, being a feminist, and being a disruptor.

Cooler still, the entire entourage—from the pilots to the ground crew to the chefs to the photographers—is women.

Want to come along for the ride? Follow us on Instagram, on Twitter, and on Snapchat at MarieClaireMag for an all-access pass behind the scenes. Keep tabs on the hashtag #PowerTrip, and check in on our Facebook Monday and Tuesday for livestreams of our panels with Gwyneth Paltrow, Bethany Mota, and more.

Special thanks to our sponsors JetBlue, W Hotels, Dell, Intel, Shiseido, and Tacori for making it all happen.

Let's roll!
