The 4th Annual Womensphere Global Summit will convene emerging women leaders across a wide range of disciplines, academic institutions, and industries, who are focused on investing in their personal development as leaders and innovators, and who are actively engaged in creating positive impact in the world through their chosen discipline or industry.

Womensphere will convene emerging leaders and innovators to build community, forge enduring connections, enable collaborations to create impact, and work together on an actionable agenda for CREATING THE FUTURE by the next generation of women leaders.

We aim to foster the necessary education, exchanges, partnerships, connections, collaborations, and initiatives to enable greater impact and success by the next generation of women leaders.

Womensphere Global Summits aim to create inspiration, education, and connections for emerging women leaders, in line with Womensphere’s purpose of unleashing potential, creating opportunity, inspiring impact, and transforming the world.

This year’s additional goals are around community, collaboration, impact, and creating a platform that enables participants to collaborate on working together on an actionable agenda for the evolution of our global society, and the evolution of women’s leadership and innovation globally.

Delegates will benefit from:

Connections with over 100 distinguished speakers & Womensphere Award Honorees over three days
Career Fair and Nonprofit Fair – There will be recruiters and representatives from Fortune 500 companies, social enterprises, and NGOs and non-profits
Mentoring Circles – There will be assigned Mentors (CEOs, professionals and successful executives, innovators, entrepreneurs, as well as Summit Speakers) joining and co-hosting each Circle as Mentors.  


This Summit will be about building a community of emerging women leaders across sectors and disciplines, including emerging women leaders across the premier academic institutions (both graduate and undergraduate) around the world, as well as young women professionals and emerging women leaders across international organizations, companies, entrepreneurial ventures, social enterprises, BCorps, non-profits, NGOs, and the public sector.
