In London in 2018 Commonwealth Heads of Government ‘resolved to address systemic barriers to women’s full and equal participation in the economy by taking a gender-responsive approach to the development of trade policy, and to promote women’s economic empowerment … and work towards an increase in the number and enhancement of the success rate of women-owned businesses, break down gender barriers in all sectors, and increase opportunities for women to trade internationally.’

Summit objectives
• Create a community by connecting women’s networking and business groups, industry bodies and partner organisations
• Engage in positive action to encourage women to seek innovation funding
• Promote success stories, case studies and role models featuring female innovators
• Eradicate no-go areas for women entrepreneurs
• Promote dynamism, diversity and visibility of female leaders and innovators
• Encourage more girls and women to enter STEAM sectors supporting innovation and entrepreneurship

You are invited.

Policy makers, Entrepreneurship Support Organisations and Entrepreneurs are invited to attend a series of expert sessions scheduled across two days and take part in a series of side activities.
