G(irls)20 equips young women with the skills and networks to be placed at the centre of decision-making spaces.
The G(irls)20 Global Summit is the only platform for young women to speak directly to G20 Leaders about the urgent issues facing young women around the world. In advance of the annual G20 meeting, G(irls)20 brings together young female leaders from 20+ countries for a week of leadership training, advocacy and networking. Delegates create policy recommendations in a communique that is delivered to G20 Leaders. Post Summit, delegates implement social impact initiatives within their communities and to date, there are more than one hundred G(irls)20 led initiatives around the world.
The Girls on Boards program is an 18-month program for Canadian women aged 18-25. The first of its kind in Canada, the program provides the country’s emerging female leaders with the training and one-on-one mentorship required to serve on governance boards, then places each participant on a non-profit board as a director. The program tackles challenges of women's under-representation on boards, by building a talent pool while simultaneously supporting boards to challenge the status quo and diversify its membership.
