What is the VW Summit?

A Global Vision for a Better Future

Each year we gather together for International Women’s Day to celebrate, acknowledge, and honor the inspiring contributions of women making an impact in the world today. 

Our most anticipated and power packed event of the year, Visionary Women’s  International Women’s Day Summit, pays tribute to the champions among us, women who embrace the extraordinary, challenge norms, and remind us of the limitless potential we have together, to create a better, brighter, and bolder future…one where every woman and girl is empowered. 

The Summit includes the presentation of several awards: The Visionary Prize for Women’s Economic Empowerment, Sponsored by Visionary Women and the Hostetler/Wrigley Foundation, The Rising Visionary Award, the Visionary Catalyst Award, and Changemaker Award.
