Cultivating a new generation of

Female Leaders

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
