Rise and Lead Summit Returns for 2019!

Join us 19th-20th September at NH Hotel-WTC, The Hague

Women. Business. Sustainability.

The Face of Leadership is changing, and women are leading the way!

Join us at the second annual Rise and Lead Summit: Empowering Women in Business for Leadership and Impact.

Rise & Lead Summit is a 2-day inspirational gathering for women in leadership, industry executives and policy makers which focuses on bridging the gender gap.

The 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, NGOs and change-makers to promote the leadership and financial inclusion of women in the workplace and marketplace to foster peace and prosperity in society.

Our core goals are:

  •    Accelerate change and close the gender gap
  •    Educate, and raise the aspirations of women to reach their highest potential
  •    Amplify voices of women leaders and the companies who support them
  •    Create a sustainable and prosperous society by empowering female entrepreneurs to create impactful and scalable businesses

The key theme of this year’s summit is: “Women and Business Sustainability and Wealth Creation.”

Women are talented and bring multiple unique styles, skills, and perspectives to the corporations and organisations they are part of, as well as the businesses they own.

The Summit is about global communities reaching their highest potential and building a sustainable future for women as entrepreneurs, CEOs, employees and leaders.

Join us and engage in meaningful conversations, analyse best practices, and be inspired by successful female founders and executives in major corporations. 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.

In this two-day event, you will have over 20 keynotes, panels and workshop sessions. Find your tribe and join different women-focused forums including women in STEM, Women in the Media, Women in Food Tech and Sustainability and Women in ethnic minorities.

Join the movement and drive the much-needed change we all want to see in the world today.
