Rise & Lead Summit once again gathers leaders from around the world to discuss Women. Business. Sustainability.

The Hague, August 12th, 2019 – After a very successful first edition last year, the Rise & Lead Summit is coming back to The Hague for two days, September 19th-20th. This year, we’re back with an even brighter passion for leadership and financial inclusion for women, an even better agenda, and an even clearer vision. “Constant talking is not going to help us, we need to learn how to become better leaders and then take that seat at the table” – shared by Ebere Akadiri, Founder and CEO of the Rise & Lead Women, the platform behind this event.

In combination with event partners, sponsors and speakers, Rise & Lead Women’s Summit 2019 is the leadership event worth attending this year. Here’s why:

Women can lead change

Supporting and inspiring women’s leadership in every workplace and marketplace is the vision for this innovative platform, where both accomplished and emerging leaders can connect, share ideas and lead change. Bringing together industry leaders, globally recognised thought leaders, executives and business founders to share skills, learnings and promote the inclusion of women in leadership is just the beginning.

Lessons from some of the best leaders in the game

There is an impressive line-up of speakers coming from fast-emerging startups as well as iconic corporations, such as Aon, Coca-Cola, Atos, UPS, Mastercard, Salesforce, Royal DSM and Elsevier, Elliot Lloyd, OPCW, the UN, and Women Political Leaders inspired to impart their knowledge and experiences.

The inclusion of the woman does not mean exclusion of the man

Gender equality includes men and women. The Rise & Lead Summit welcomes both male and female participants. We need to work together to achieve diversity and inclusion and we have an inclusive panel at the Summit, where we will discuss, “How to Build an Inclusive Culture: Addressing Gender Bias in Companies and Society”.

Committed to educating future leaders even after the summit

Rise & Lead is committed to providing tools and resources, as well as facilitating meaningful connections through mentorship circles and programs that support women leaders to thrive. You can learn more about Connect2Grow, The Leadership Development program, and The School of Sustainable Business For Female Entrepreneurs and Executives at www.riseandleadwomen.com.

Who to Expect:

Over 20 panels, keynote addresses, workshops and mentoring corners presented by experts and thought leaders from across the globe, covering topics that will help catalyse your leadership. You’ll be empowered with the skills, knowledge and connections needed to reach your highest potential.

Rise and Lead Women is a platform for a global tribe of ambitious women leaders and men allies with a mission to promote the financial and leadership inclusion of women in the workplace, marketplace and society.

Rise & Lead was born from the vision of one entrepreneur, Ebere Akadiri, determined to work towards closing the gender gap sooner than the 217 years announced by the World Economic Forum.
