Rise and Lead Summit 2020 – Press Release

The face of leadership is changing, and women are leading the way!

Join the third annual Rise and Lead Summit: Leadership. Inclusion. Equity

The Summit is a 2-day inspirational gathering for women in leadership, entrepreneurs, industry executives and policymakers, which focuses on bridging the gender gap. 

Leadership. Inclusion. Equity

The Rise and Lead Summit is the annual highlight of Rise and Lead Women: a global knowledge sharing, education and social impact platform that connects leaders, company executives, business owners, emerging leaders and change-makers to promote the leadership and financial inclusion of women in the workplace and marketplace.  

The key theme of this year’s summit is “Leadership. Inclusion. Equity”. The conversation will focus on building a more inclusive workplace, equitable funding spaces and safe societies, where everyone feels included and empowered to unleash their potential.


What to expect during the Summit

Meet and network with industry executives and change-makers. Get ready to connect and build relationships with like-minded women and organisations at the forefront of closing the gender gap. Learn new strategies and skills to unleash your leadership potential.

Join the conversation, contribute your voice, and learn through curated workshop topics.

In 2019, the Rise and Lead Summit was a sold-out event:  120+ leaders and change-makers from different nationalities participated. All of the attendees left supercharged and ready to take action to grow their leadership skills and their impact. The 2020 Summit will be even larger: more organisations, more women, more men, more networks, more breakouts, more mentoring corners, more networking for deeper connections, and more valuable content!
