Our signature event, the Global Leadership Awards gala, is held each year in Washington, D.C. at The John F. Kennedy Center. We honor some of the world’s most courageous and innovative leaders making breakthrough change for women and girls in their countries.

Throughout the year, from documentary theater featuring true stories of real women in our network, to local fundraisers organized by young professionals, there are a range of events and outreach opportunities available to anyone interested in getting involved.

Sign up for our newsletter and to learn more about upcoming receptions, book parties, study tour, special film screenings and more.
