    the Power of Women

    The Digital Power of Women (DPOW) Conference, running parallel to the G20 summit, serves as a platform for amplifying the collective power of women leaders to drive global change. Through our interactive digital conference, DPOW provides space for showcasing impactful work, sharing insights, and collaborating on solutions. The conference features keynote speeches, panel discussions, workshops, cultural performances, and audience engagement activities.


    In collaboration with C20 for G20, DPOW facilitates discussions on policy recommendations and promotes the voices of girls and women in decision-making processes. DPOW transforms written policy recommendations provided by C20 into comprehensive audio-video formats, utilizing music and media to create an engaging edutainment experience. This approach enhances engagement, fosters collaboration, and provides women leaders and organizations supporting women's empowerment the opportunity to highlight their contributions toward the shared mission of peace and wellbeing for all.


    The conference provides accessibility for a global audience to participate digitally, and get inspired to take action toward a more equitable and sustainable world.
