There are now 27 clubs spanning the globe, including London, Paris, Amsterdam, Stockholm, Albania, New York, South Africa, Chicago, Dubai, Cyprus, Singapore and Manila, to name a few.
Members participate in monthly meet-ups, learn from masterclasses, and thrive in a safe, caring and supportive environment for building their personal and professional brands, and creating awareness through the Club’s media platform.

The 7th Global Woman Summit and Awards featured a line-up of outstanding speakers blazing a trail of transformation, empowerment and leadership development. Attended by over 300 international delegates, the Summit centered around three main themes: conscious leadership, financial freedom, and personal and professional wellbeing.
Featured panel sessions over the two days included The Role of Women in Leadership for Female Founders, Fast-Tracking Your Professional Career, The Men’s Panel on Why Men Should Stand for Women Empowerment, A Media Panel on The Power of Media and the Digital World, and the Rise of Young Female Entrepreneurs. Joining this internationally acclaimed roster od speakers was Ms. Iturralde-Hamlin herself, who shared her expertise and experience on overcoming cultural barriers for business success.
You made us and the whole country proud, Ms. Monette!
