Over five days, the Summer School for Female Leadership in the Digital Age allowed participants to spend time with numerous world-class leaders from around the EU and beyond, who taught and mentored them. They joined to share their ideas, debate the current state of global affairs and shared challenges ahead, and brainstorm about how, together, we could shape a thriving digital future for Europe.
