About The 2019 Summit

G(irls)20 is coming to Japan for the 10th annual 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.

 

Why we need a G(irls)20 Summit

For economies to compete in the 21st century, we must close the gap between men and women’s inclusion in the global economy.

G(irls)20 is cultivating a new generation of female leaders globally, through training young leaders in 21st-century leadership skills, access to senior mentors in business and social profit, and by placing young women at decision-making tables.

By centering young women’s experience and expertise at the centre of the G20 process, the G(irls)20 Summit seeks to equip world leaders with a new, youth-informed approach to close the gap once and for all between men and women around the world.
