- Determine which partners are committed for the 2011 Summit and campaign
- Follow-up with the G(irls)20 Ambassadors to support the work they choose to undertake in their local communities.

Phase III: Delivery (January 1-July 2011)

Years 2-5: 2011-2015
Please note that this timeline will be replicated in years 2-5 with adjustments as required. The 2011 G(irls)20 Summit will be used as a learning year for future Summits, and as such may influence future implementation timelines.
There are 3.3 billion girls and women in the world with the potential to change their communities and the larger global populace. In spite of this potential, girls and women are often not in a position to implement the changes they wish to see in the world and in their communities. Through economic empowerment, political engagement and social action, girls and women can be supported so that they can strengthen their communities and countries. The Belinda Stronach Foundation is the lead organizer and funder of the G(irls)20 Summit, a summit that is designed to empower and engage girls and women.

Additionally, they would welcome partners with media expertise to help drive awareness of the campaign and the Summit.
