About the Global Summit
‘Women leaders are switching jobs at the highest rates we’ve ever seen, and ambitious young women are prepared to do the same. To make meaningful and sustainable progress toward gender equality, companies need to go beyond table stakes.’*
Launched in 2021, the everywoman global summit brings everywomanNetwork members and prospective members together for an event that enables corporates to upskill all parts of their business to help them achieve their gender diversity and inclusion goals. Last year brought together 1800+ senior women leaders, rising stars and male allies from a broad range of industries across all major continents to share global best practice in gender inclusion and upskill the women workforce.

Who Should Attend?
The Summit is open to everyone – from women looking to advance their career and create more diverse teams, to men working to support women in their teams and wider organisations. A sample of the companies and job functions that attended last year are below:
Each element of the event provides best practice standards to benchmark against and tangible ways to move the diversity agenda forward. We’ve developed different types of content suited to everyone from Board level to aspiring leaders of the future. Here’s how it works:
|Who we serve||How we serve them|
|ERG and Affinity Group Leaders||The Employee Resource Group Leaders’ Academy: Learn best practices for growing and nurturing your group, increasing its impact and effectiveness, and mastering inclusivity best practices.|
|People Managers||The Inclusive Leader Certificate: A dedicated track for people managers looking to lead diverse teams.|
|Female Talent||Main Forum: Leadership development days with a full programme of interactivity, mentoring opportunities, networking and practical guidance for developing your career.|
|Male Allies||Male Allyship: Understand what you need to know, say and do to align with best practice effectiveness.|
As we’ve designed the event to serve the needs of the entire organisation, we’ve also created best value attendance packages to match. Single tickets to particular elements are available, but the Summit will be most effective if you bring all the relevant people across the organisation together.
How does a digital event work
Our digital events bring all the benefits of a real world event into the online space, minus the expense, hassle and climate damage of travel. You can message other attendees, participate in lively chats, enjoy networking opportunities, visit booths and join in on a variety of dynamic interactive sessions. This is a world away from a standard”watch and learn” webinar format, but all from the comfort of your own desk.
