W20 Summit 2017
“When we invest in women, we invest in a powerful source of global development.” This belief, along with your dedicated engagement in the Foundation, is the reason why we called on you with the request to get involved in this year’s W20 Summit, backing our claim for full economic empowerment of women and making it heard and taken up by the G20 Heads of State and Government at their summit in July.
This year’s W20 Summit took place on 24th – 26th April 2017 in Berlin. At the Summit, the broad dedication to the W20 cause of full access of women to labour markets and their financial and digital inclusion in each and every corner of the world was highlighted. On the 26th of April 2017, the final W20 Communiqué was passed on to current G20 President Angela Merkel.
