About Our Charity
Mission: To advance the full participation of girls and women globally through their economic and educational empowerment.
Launched in 2009, G(irls)20 places women aged 18-25 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.
What do we offer?
Annual Global G(irls)20 Summit for 18-23 years old young women from the G20 countries. We train delegates and help them launch their own social profit initiative while at the same time generate ideas for G20 Member States on how to keep their 2014 commitment to create 100 millions jobs for women by 2025.
- Girls on Boards - a program to coach, train and then match young women living in Canada on non-profit governance boards for up to one year.
