What is the Rise & Lead Summit?

The Rise & Lead Summit is an annual event dedicated to advancing women into top leadership positions, benefiting organisations and communities. This gathering unites leaders, organisations, and individuals committed to fostering diverse talent and promoting inclusive practices. Attendees gain tools to amplify their voices, drive meaningful change within their companies and communities, and enhance their professional skills and well-being.

Whether you focus on personal and professional development, creating initiatives to drive gender diversity and inclusion, or seeking creative solutions to tackle DEI challenges and improve team engagement, you’ll leave the Rise & Lead Summit rejuvenated and equipped with actionable insights and strategies.


This summit has been an incredible experience for me. I attended with the intention of learning from experienced leaders and discovering my own voice in meetings. I was also eager to support others in their leadership journeys and engage in meaningful discussions with peers on topics close to my heart, such as gender diversity and empowering women in the field. Moreover, the networking sessions provided an invaluable opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals who may be facing similar challenges.

I feel empathy in the conversation that we have at the summit, and a lot of connection with myself as well, which is very motivating, and I’m sure that everyone else in the room has the same feeling. So we are coming back to our companies to network with more motivation to make a difference in equality, diversity, and inclusion.
