Swatch Art Peace Hotel Title

We are excited to announce the IPWS Leadership Summit on Friday 27th May, and you’re invited!

Throughout the Leadership Summit, we’ll also be announcing the winners of this year’s Women Leadership Award. The stellar leadership event will focus on “Embracing the Changing Nature of Leadership: A Roadmap to Success”. Through a curated agenda, the Summit will provide opportunities for participants to learn about Leadership trends and best practices with other peers and to network, in order to create lasting value.

On the global stage, we’ve seen the United Nations highlight gender equality & women’s empowerment as one of the ’17 Goals to Transform Our World’ and many researchers pointing out Gender & Corporate Social Responsibilities is a matter of sustainability. This May, International Professional Women’s Society will host the Leadership Summit and bring together the best thinkers & leaders in our community to continue these discussions. How can we embrace the changing nature of leadership?

What is a Leadership Summit?

A Summit is an extending meeting and usually associated with governance. A Leadership Summit is a meeting of our community leaders and IPWS networks with the aim to celebrate the best leaders in Business, Innovation, Entrepreneurial & Social Contribution while also workshopping & brainstorming on the theme.
