This opportunity sounds exciting...if only I was 30 years younger!  Come on young women around the world, get your applications in!  You could be one of the 20 women attending.

Here is the message with further details as received in an email this week:

TakingITGlobal is a partner in this exciting event, and we invite you to get involved and spread the word!

There are 3.3 billion girls and women in the world - and they should be integral to, and included in the development of innovative, sustainable and socially responsible solutions to the world's economic and social challenges.

Meeting in Toronto from June 16th - 26th, we will bring together one girl from each G20 country to discuss and promote tangible, scalable solutions toward economic prosperity.
