The G(irls)20 Summit is an event that Crushable can get behind. Organized by The Belinda Stronach Foundation, the summit brings girls ages 18 to 21 together two weeks before leaders of the world’s most powerful nations meet in Cannes, France for the G20 Summit. The delegates, who each represent a G20 nation and the African Union, will discuss how girls and women can affect change with some of the world’s biggest problems. This year’s summit is in Paris and the organization today announced the names of the impressive girls who were chosen as delegates to represent their home countries. More
Topic: G(irls)20 Summit
Last year, B5 Media – the company that owns Crushable and our sister sites Blisstree and The Gloss – was a proud sponsor and media partner of the first ever G(irls)20 summit. The conference, which is designed to coincide with the annual G20 summit, brings young women from around the world as delegates to participate in a discussion about girls and women’s issues around the world. During G(irls)20, these young women participate in panel discussions, meet with dignitaries, and create a communique about major women’s issues and how they should be addressed. Last year’s summit dealt with topics like maternal health and women’s education.
So, how can you get involved? More
Little girls can grow up to be anything. They can be journalists, Supreme Court justices, CEOs or President of the United States. Women can also be a powerful force in their communities, even when they’re young. Crushable wants to empower young women to be whatever they want to be — or things they haven’t even thought of yet — by partnering with the Belinda Stronach Foundation for the G(irls)20 Summit for the second year in a row.
The G(irls)20 Summit is modeled after the G20 leaders meeting, bringing together one delegate from each G20 country, and a representative from the African Union. Each delegate is a young woman, aged 18-20. During the Summit, delegates participate in panel discussions, attend workshops on subjects such as media relations, social media and business planning, and discuss tangible, scalable solutions toward economic prosperity. After the Summit, delegates are encouraged to return home to their communities with new tools and implement the initiatives they learned and discussed. It’s an empowering experience for young women from all over the globe — some of which might have never even thought they could make a difference in the world.
This year’s Summit will take place in Paris on October 18-21, and you can be a delegate. More
