In our nation’s capital this week some of AT&T’s top female leaders are at the 2013 Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit. It’s a great event that allows us to hear directly from some of the world’s most influential women. It also gives us the chance to share AT&T’s story of innovation and commitment to diversity with an outstanding audience.

One of the ways we’re doing that this year is by sponsoring a session called “The Perfect Pitch.” Four female entrepreneurs with science, engineering, technology and math (STEM) backgrounds will have five minutes each to convince the audience why their idea is the best. A panel of judges, including AT&T's Cathy Coughlin, will ask the contestants questions to help determine a winner. Then, everyone in the room will vote via text for their favorite.

The contest kicked off Thursday at 10 a.m. ET. Watch it live here.

Learn more about the four finalists and the 2013 Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit, by checking out Cathy Coughlin's consumer blog post.
