GBA Peer Learning

Best Practices and Networking

One of the most unique benefits the Alliance offers members is the opportunity to learn practical wisdom from the real-world experiences our members have on what it takes to build a profitable Women’s Market program. Our Peer Learning activities provide a wealth of information and valuable networking opportunities:

Annual Summit

The Summit brings together the entire membership with an intensive review of best practices, in-depth Case Studies and prominent guest speakers. The 2016 Summit was hosted by IFC in Washington, DC, and the 2017 Summit will be held from November 14-16 in London, hosted by the Royal Bank of Scotland Group.
