WomEn's* International

Social Impact weekend

Community. Connection. Confidence.

Online Nov 6th - 8th , 2020

HYBRID EVENT | MADRID & ONLINE

OCTOBER 2021

*At Emzingo|U, we want to create an inclusive community where all feel welcomed, heard, and seen. We have chosen to use the asterisk after women* to indicate that we aim to use an inclusive definition of "woman" and "female," welcoming those of all gender identities. Emzingo|U is on a learning journey of our own to ensure we're creating inclusive environments for all gender, racial, religious, and international identities. We welcome your input if you are passionate about or an expert in Gender & LGBTQ+ Equality. Please email us at partnerships@emzingo.com. We look forward to learning together.

All Hands In

Are you interested in social entrepreneurship?

Do you want to meet female founders from across the globe?

Are you eager to start your own organization or help a female entrepreneur with hers?

THE EVENT

Join us to meet, connect, and grow alongside self-identifying women* working, studying, and interested in social impact from around the world. At Emzingo|U, we aim to train the next generation of responsible and inclusive leaders. If you are like us, you may also believe that many of those future leaders are those who identify as women*! And that you, too, are one of them. Come learn alongside women* from all over the world - Peru, Brazil, South Africa, Cameroon, Colombia, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Japan, India, US, Canada, Mexico and more - to discuss and connect around social entrepreneurship, women's* leadership, mentoring, group coaching, confidence building, samba, and believing in ourselves and our ability to impact change. 

You will receive a certificate in Global Social Entrepreneurship once you attend the full weekend conference.

Each organization will present a challenge, and you will work with other women* to help generate innovative ideas to help them overcome that challenge. Each group will then present their recommendations for a chance to win $500USD for their social entrepreneur. The three finalist teams will receive a Global Social Impact Challenge certificate.
