Every year, we join forces with our members and partners to advocate and support Women in Leadership, along with making sure governments and multilateral agencies hear our message: “We stand with Women for increased Opportunities of growth in businesses, public service, professionals and in Leadership overall”.


The objective of this annual conference is to bring together a diverse mix of successful women leaders whom through the discussion of topics relevant to today’s issues and challenges, will educate, inspire and encourage women to reflect on their own goals, vision and status as they strive to advance within their organizations and businesses.  Our participants range from a wide level of business professionals, entrepreneurs, government, non-profit organization directors and representatives, academics, and local public officials. We encourage all of those that are committed to excellence and the empowerment of women in all sectors to take part in this event. The program is fully in English.
