Global Summit of Women: A History of Leadership

The Global Summit of Women was conceived as the nexus at which all sectors – public, private and nonprofit – would come together under the common vision of dramatically expanding women’s economic opportunities globally through exchanges of working solutions and creative strategies forged by women leaders in different parts of the world.  It is a business Summit, whose ‘business’ focus is women’s advancement in the global economy. For 30 years, the Summit has been connecting women worldwide.
