Launched in 2009 at the Clinton Global Initiative, G(irls)20 places girls and women at the heart of the economic decision making process by advancing the idea that increasing female labour force participation will generate growth, stabilize communities and countries, and lead to social innovation.
While advocating for change at a global level, we work at the community and individual level by making strategic investments in girls and women, aged 15-25 in 20+ countries. We do this so they can pursue opportunities at home and abroad. In partnership with the private sector, social profit sector and individuals, we are able to provide skills building workshops (entrepreneurship, financial preparedness, communications, technology navigation, leadership, etc.); a global Summit; global mentorships; and, coaching so that each of our participants can launch their own program/initiative to empower others. G(irls)20 is also the driving force behind Fathers Empowering Daughters, Bootcamp For Brains and Girls on Boards.
