Today, as people around the world celebrate the 100th Anniversary of International Women’s Day, The Belinda Stronach Foundation and 30 supporting businesses and organizations have announced the Second Annual G(irls)20 Summit 2011. On October 18-20, a girl from each of the G20 countries, and the African Union, will come together to “debate, discuss and design innovative solutions for the economic challenges of our time.” The participants are all 18-20 year old young women and will be trained in business, media and public policy so that they can grow innovative solutions in their own communities. Together they will write recommendations for the G20 leaders to consider when they meet in November 2011. There are many ways for YOU to get involved. Are you, your sister, cousin or friend the next G(irls)20 Summit delegate from your country?
