The Newday Leadership Summit
Thursday 4 July
We were thrilled to hear about some of the great speakers presenting at this summit.
Silvia Vasquez-Lavado is a personal favourite.
Mountain-climber and social entrepreneur
Silvia Vasquez-Lavado’s life has taken her all over the word. She has led more than one million people to march for girls’ rights in Peru in 2018, addressed the world’s leaders at the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women and inspired thousands of people with her humanitarian work.
Silvia’s work in tech in California and global human rights has attracted plaudits from Fortune 500 magazine, CNET and the Peruvian government for her work in technology and social justice. Since 2014, her Courageous Girls initiative has supported the healing and empowerment of sexually abused girls through physical endurance, creative and mindfulness techniques.
As an avid adventurer and entrepreneur, Silvia has combined her many passions. She has climbed the tallest summit on each of the seven continents and became the first Peruvian woman to summit Mount Everest. It’s exciting to think of where she will lead us at Newday Summit this year!
We embrace our responsibility to make choices that improve society and the environment for all living things.
We celebrate the power of connection and the opportunity this creates for transformative action for the greater good.
