Summary

BBS supports G(irls) 20 and the vision of a world in which girls and women fully participate in the economic growth, political stability and social innovations of their countries. The annual Global Summit gives young women leaders access to world-class leadership development, social enterprise training and mentoring by female leaders. In 2020 the Summit shifted to an on-line format and this project covers the costs of the 30 global participants for the 2021 Summit in this revised format.

Challenge

Challenging the status quo requires that young women are given the tools and networks to step into leadership roles and collaborate on solutions. In 2020 the world watched as stay-at-home orders closed borders and sent millions into unemployment. Global collaboration has never been more important, and young women must be at the centre of a global effort to build back bettter - whether that's pushing for accessible education or ensuring we don't lose progress on gender parity in the workforce.

Solution

This project supports the direct project costs incurred to run the online Summit for the 30 delegates from around the world. This includes the costs to ensure all participants have access to a laptop and internet, for the workshop facilitators and training materials, and to deliver the online programming through a Learning Management System. Finally, funds will be used for ongoing project evaluation to ensure delivery of the highest quality programming to cultivate our next generation leader.

Long-Term Impact

Starting in 2010, the Global Summit runs in parallel with the annual G20 Conference. In addition to the Summit's learning, mentoring and networking, an official communique is developed with recommendations for G20 leaders based on the delegates' unique experience and expertise. It is then delivered to each leader or their personal representative. This project supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal #5 to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.
