2019 week of women

We are delighted that the Women of the Future Programme is working in association with the Foreign & Commonwealth Office and the GREAT Britain Campaign to support the Week of Women, which brings together incredible female talent and future leaders from around the world. Each year, the Week of Women shines a spotlight on gender equality. The line-up of events promotes the empowerment of women, providing opportunities to learn, be inspired and connect with a powerful global network of talent. The Week of Women includes events that bring together a global community to encourage and enable cultural exchange, learning and networking. Our aim is to build meaningful and global connections.

In 2018 we were joined by delegates from 44 countries.

It was an absolutely fabulous Summit and evening Awards.  The four women I brought along from my business, along with my daughter, were all so thrilled to be there and took so much away from it.

I found the Summit thought provoking and very inspiring. These are issues I rarely get the chance to hear about, speak about or be involved with so I am grateful for the opportunity to attend.

Calling all Women of the Future – invest in yourself and attend this summit. Networking opportunities and inspirational speakers on modern topics that broaden your thinking, not only for your career but on a personal and social level too. You’ll feel enriched, empowered and energised to put into practice your key takeaways!
Having just returned to work from maternity leave, it was fantastic to attend an event where I could meet and share experiences with such a diverse group of women. The speakers were engaging and inspiring and provided plenty of food for thought.
