Summit: G(irls)20 Summit 2017 in Germany, Dec 2016
In partnership with over 40 internationally recognized organizations (for profit and social profit), applicants are sought and selected based on their responses to questions that focus on leadership, analytical skills, personal triumph and their ability to create innovative solutions to the economic challenges facing the world. The selected delegates go through a yearlong program, which starts months before the Summit itself.
In the months leading up to the Summit, delegates receive extensive reading materials on issues, policies, and industries relevant to the upcoming Summit, as well as media training with coaches from Burson-Marsteller. Delegates also partake in leadership assessment training via the Myers- Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), which is provided by Norton Rose Fulbright.
DURING THE SUMMIT
Delegates attend skills-building workshops, participate in panel discussions with local and global experts, and then produce a communiqué with tangible, scalable solutions to increase female labor force participation (FLFP). The communiqué is presented to G20 Leaders for their consideration.
Post Summit, the delegates create their own initiatives or help scale up existing programs in their communities. They are matched with mentors (female and male), in various industries to accelerate their paths. This pay it forward concept has resulted in more than 80 Ambassor-led initiatives around the world.
