Women government leaders, senior executives and entrepreneurs from around the world are marking July 4-6, 2019 on their calendars as the date of the 2019 Global Summit of Women in Basel, Switzerland. The premier global business and economic forum for women for the past 29 years, the Summit looks forward to bringing over 1,000 influential leaders in business and government from 60+ countries to Switzerland, world-renowned not only for its beauty but also for its formidable financial and healthcare centers.


Switzerland, with a wealth of women business achievers in different capacities, serves as an apt venue for the Global Summit of Women and its focus on promoting women’s economic advancement. Topping several Quality of Life surveys and ranked second in the 2018 UNDP Human Development Report, Switzerland is especially suited to the theme of the 2019 Summit – Women: Re-Defining Success, which explores the ways in which access to equitable pay, leadership roles, and the ability to have ‘success’ at home as well as at work comprise women’s sense of well-being as economic stakeholders. Switzerland has pending pay equity legislation for consideration by its Parliament as well as a quota law for women on boards.

“We are so pleased to bring the 2019 Global Summit of Women to Switzerland, specifically to Basel, given its role not just as an art center but also the headquarters for some of the world’s largest pharmaceutical/healthcare/biotech companies. “I know that women traveling to Basel for the Summit will find it welcoming and an inviting location to make contacts with Swiss businesswomen eager to connect with their global counterparts.”
Women and men interested in being a part of this engaging, solutions-oriented gathering of high caliber participants are invited to come to Basel to take part in the information-sharing, skills-building and global networking which have made the Global Summit of Women the leading forum for women in business globally.
