Very good event. I just wished we were notified earlier so we could have brought in our students. Also, next time around, I would suggest including research-based presentations that offer more general insights and evaluate policies and strategies pursued.

This was an interesting event where I was able to make great new connections. I have already schedule six meetings as a result of attending. I wish there was more time in between sessions. Perhaps fewer speakers per session would also allow for deeper conversation. The diversity of perspectives (countries/titles/etc), however, was outstanding.

Was wonderful to bring together such an interesting group and cover so many topics yet provide time for one and one and networking. Great venue too!

user picture Visitor

Fantastic event with so many inspiring women from six countries. Lots of opportunities for networking. Highly recommend this summit and looking forward to the next one

user picture Visitor

The event was very well organized, also nice topics chosen for the panel discussions. I would reconsider the number of members in the panel and the way of askings questions. It was a little bit too much when every question was answered by all 6 panelists.

user picture Visitor

Great opportunity for networking and to hear from inspirational women
