WPL Annual Global Summit 2017

The WPL Annual Global Summit 2017 will be hosted,  in cooperation with the Althingi – Iceland’s Parliament – and the Government of Iceland, in Reykjavík (Iceland) on 28-30 November.

This high-level conference will be a unique gathering of women political leaders as it will bring together at least 250 female political leaders from all over the world. Past WPL Annual Global Summits have each attracted several hundred female Parliamentarians and other senior politicians to Amman (Jordan)  Addis Ababa (Ethiopia), Mexico City (Mexico), Kigali (Rwanda) and the European Parliament (Brussels).

The event takes place in collaboration with the Council of Women World Leaders (CWWL), whose Chair, President Dalia Grybauskaite of Lithuania, will convene CWWL’s network of women Prime Ministers and Presidents.

The Twitter hashtag for this event: #WPLsummit.
