What the delegates are saying...

"Attending the Global Summit of Women for the first time has really opened my eyes.  I always saw myself as a corporate woman.  Until I started exploring different models of entrepreneurship and analyzing my own skills." 
          - Dr. Asia Maccawi Ahmed, Librarian, Ahfad University for Women

"Three weeks have already passed since my return from Egypt... This Summit was magical in all its aspects, the great number of fascinating and capable women, the incredible generosity of your Egyptian hosts, the excellent organization of such a momentous gathering."
          - Kerstin Connor,  2006 Summit Participant

"The Summit was a huge success with the ITT (6 of us).  They were inspired and they have recommended that going forward that we continue to be a part of it.  Clearly there has been an individual positive impact on each of the participants."
          - Usha Wright, Senior Vice President, Global Workforce Strategy,
             ITT Corporation
