Global Summit of Women Celebrates 30th Anniversary

Washington, DC -Attendees from over a dozen countries came together at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC on Friday, February 28 for a Gala Dinner to celebrate 30 years of the Global Summit of Women, a global business/economic forum for women.

An international Parade of Leaders opened with a salute to the Summit by sharing their experience of participating in this global forum over the years and how the Summit has impacted their careers, lives, and the lives of others. “It was a powerful reminder of what the Summit means to its participants and what it has been able to do over the past 30 years,” said President Irene Natividad.

During her remarks at the event, Natividad emphasized the need for global alliances and the ability of women to see the importance of it. “The Summit is about coming together across borders, which is more important now than at any other time,” she said. “Doors are being shut as the result of trade wars or conflict or virus. In order for us to address the problems of the times, we as women need to be able to work together, and, through the Summit, women are able to reach across borders and understand the importance of it.”
