Join the world’s fastest-growing platform for women who lead. This year, the Summit will address gender disparities and women empowerment, through the key theme that is: “Brave conversations 2.0 that uplift and drive change”. These conversations will tackle hard-hitting issues such as Opportunity Inequality, Empowerment, Gender-Based Violence and Remote Working for Women – considering the current global pandemic.


Through this theme, the summit aims to fuel the global gender empowerment movement by connecting women entrepreneurs, global icons, thought leaders and experts to offer inspiration and actionable insights. The conference will also feature high-profile speakers, #ICHOOSEYOU campaign power icons, and changemakers who will offer practical solutions and access to networks of support for women across the globe.


“This conference is aligned with CiTi’s Top Tech Tools for Woman In Business Programme vision to create an empowering atmosphere for women who are eager to infuse technology into their businesses” says Lara Rosmarin, Head of Entrepreneurial Development at CiTi. “CiTi understands the importance of creating  digitally enabled businesses, that has the capacity to navigate challenges and opportunities in a streamlined and more efficient manner”.
