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.

Our Impact

We believe that investing in young female leaders will change the status quo and help cultivate the next generation of political, civil and business leaders. In 2018, our year kicked off with participation in G7 Roundtable discussions with global leaders and ended in December with the launch of applications for our next Global Summit. The months in between? Jam-packed with programming, advocating and building crucial networks of young women across Canada and around the globe. 2018 saw G(irls)20 host our 9th annual Global Summit, a Summit focused on driving change by advocating that G20 leaders address issues facing women and girls globally.
