Recognized as an exclusive forum for notable change makers, the Global Leaders Dinner Series is where powerful female minds connect to leverage their influence and grow their businesses through shared thought leadership and authentic conversation – the impact of which will extend far beyond the evening.
Formerly known as the Global Senior Executive Dinner Series, the program was originally designed to recognize and elevate corporate champions at the Board, CEO, and Senior Executive level who have made significant contributions to the advancement of women in both public and private sectors. Around these tables, from Toronto to Washington to Hong Kong, corporate champions discussed the pitfalls to women’s executive advancement and the change we wanted to see.
As we move into a new era of radical change, the community and conversation has evolved.
By invitation only, the Global Leaders Dinner Series is an exclusive forum hosted in major epicentres in North America, Europe and Asia. These prestigious evenings now bring together 75 notable leaders, senior executives and entrepreneurs who have demonstrated their investment to women’s advancement and play a critical role in advancing our competitiveness in the global economy. Around the table, authentic conversation will focus on revealing the innovative ways female leaders are creating change in real-time and how we can leverage each other’s strengths and connections to move the common agenda forward.
Beyond sharing stories, it’s time to exchange power.
The intersection between powerful corporate leaders and progressive female entrepreneurs is critical to boosting the impact of women globally, evidenced in part by the Canada-United States Council for Advancement of Women Entrepreneurs and Business Leaders [which includes past dinner attendees Elyse Allan, CEO, GE Canada; Dawn Farrell, President & CEO, TransAlta Corporation; Deborah Gillis, Former President & CEO, Catalyst; Annette Verschuren, Chair & CEO, NRStor Inc.]
In response, the Global Leaders Dinner Series is designed to drive engagement between these two groups in a private forum where meaningful connections are made and substantial insights are exchanged.
