Gender Smart Investing Summit 2020

The Gender-Smart Investing Summit is an invite-only forum that brings together 350 thought leaders and game changers from a range of backgrounds to drive collaborative dialogue and leverage our collective capacity to unlock barriers to deploying capital in a gender-smart way.

Some join with a primary focus on gender equality, some focus on the power of women making markets. Some have a primary commitment to issues such as the climate crisis, education, health, or human rights.

All share a common belief that together, we can move more global gender-smart capital, more strategically, and spark real and lasting change.

We are currently planning our 2020 Global Gender-Smart Investing SummitSubscribe to stay in the loop or enquire about sponsorship.

 

From December 1 - 4, 2020 at Wokefield Place just outside London, we will convene 350 leaders shaping the significant movement of capital for a fairer world. The rural grounds allow for a productive retreat away from the chaos of England’s capital, providing valuable space and time for action-focused dialogue and careful reflection.

Summit Goals

Our transformative 2018 Global Gender-Smart Investing Summit convened the full spectrum of stakeholders advancing the gender-lens investing movement. The atmosphere was electric: new partnerships were forged, deep commitments were made and the field took a bold leap forward.

Our invite-only 2020 Global Summit builds on this momentum, to the theme of Further, Faster, Smarter. An independent delegate selection committee will curate the gathering of diverse global leaders who share our goal of engaging in outcomes-oriented dialogue, and address the bottlenecks that stand in the way of deploying billions of additional gender-smart dollars.

Summit Structure

Our design principles for the Summit’s agenda are grounded in creating a highly interactive environment. Each session is structured to:

  • maximise collaborative work

  • allow for open and vulnerable sharing

  • foster new connections

  • accelerate individual, organisational and field-level gender-smart journeys
