About The Summit
G(irls)20 is coming to Japan for the 10th Global Summit. 20+ young women from around the world will arrive in Tokyo for a week of leadership training, social enterprise development and mentoring by female leaders in the business and public sectors. At the end of the week, delegates will deliver a Communiqué highlighting policies to promote young women’s economic inclusion to Ambassador Koji Tomita, Japan’s G20 Sherpa.
Launched in 2009 at the Clinton Global Initiative, G(irls)20 places young women at the centre of decision- making processes. Through our signature programs, Global Summit and Girls on Boards, we make strategic investments in young women through education and training, building networks, and access to unparalleled opportunities at home and abroad. While advocating for change at the global level through the annual G(irls)20 Global Summit, we are invested in changing the status quo for women at decision-making tables in communities across Canada by placing Girls on Boards
