NEW YORK, NY

DATES: Friday, April 29th -30th, 2016.

TIME: 9AM – 4PM each day (GALA AT 7PM Saturday)

 

It is with great and undiluted pleasure that we announce a strategic and Joint Venture Partnership between African Women's Health Project International (AWHPI) and The Global Institute For Human Excellence, on the one hand, and Global Council of Women For Development, on the other hand, to Host the Global Summit On Women Empowerment on Friday, April 29th – Saturday, 30th, 2016 at One UN Plaza, One United Nations Plaza, New York, NY 10017.

 

This year’s Summit theme: Empower Women and you Empower Mankind! The Director General of the Summit, Dr. Yomi Garnett said the Summit is envisaged to be an international forum for the comprehensive evaluation of the socio-economic, political and intellectual development of women in the new millennium, will provide a neutral pedestal for a global collaboration of governments, organizations and businesses for the continued well-being, social emancipation and economic empowerment of women worldwide. It will also be a nexus at which relevant stakeholders involved in concerted effort towards the achievement of Millennium Development Goal 3, would converge to re-examine progress achieved so far, and to proffer workable strategies for consolidating on the gains attained. As a business Summit, it will beam a flashlight on the entrepreneurial advancement of women in a male-dominated corporate world.

 

The Distinguished Advisory Board of the Summit is Chaired by Dr. Gloria Herndon, President/CEO, GB Group Global, Washington, DC. Dr. Herndon comes from an uncommonly rich pedigree in committed public service as a seasoned diplomat, and rewarding entrepreneurship spanning more than forty five years. “It is instructive to note that the 1995 Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing marked the significant turning point for the global agenda for gender equality. That’s why this Summit is so important,” says Dr. Herndon.

 

The Summit, which is being held in perfect synchrony and coincidence in continuation of last year's United Nations General Assembly, and at which the world body celebrated its 70th year of existence, is expected to have women leaders from all over in attendance. We are excited to have in our midst, confirmed speakers at the summit includes: Naila Husain Chowdhury of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Mrs. Folorunsho Alakija of Rose of Sharon Foundation (FORBES list), Dr. Sharon Ingram of the Alabama Benin Trade Forum/AGOA, HRM Queen Rania of Jordan Kingdom, Brenda Morant of International Women Think-Tank/iHUB Atlanta, YiLing Li of UCT (USA China Taiwan) International Culture Development Center, Her Excellency Mrs. Zhao (wife of the Undersecretary of the United Nations), Sheila Ronning of Women in the Boardroom, HRH Princess Angelique Monet is Duchess of Aquitane, and we are excited to have as our official host ladies of the UN Ambassadors Spouse Club!
