2020 Girl Up Leadership Summit
Meghan Markle Is Teaming Up with Michelle Obama for Gender Equality Summit This Month
Meghan Markle is joining forces with some big names to speak about a subject close to her heart: gender equality and the need for social change.
The Duchess of Sussex will be a special guest at the 2020 Girl Up Leadership Summit, which is being conducted virtually this year from July 13 to 15.
“The present is female! But don’t take our word for it. Hear Meghan Markle, The Duchess of Sussex’s advice for global girls leaders when she takes the stage at the 2020 @GirlUp Leadership Summit, happening virtually July 13-15!” GirlUp said in the official tweet breaking the news on Tuesday.
Also on the roster for the three-day event is former First Lady Michelle Obama, who Meghan has met on several occasions — when Meghan popped backstage in December 2018 during the London stop of Obama’s sold-out book tour for her memoir, Becoming, and in spring 2019 during Obama’s second stop in London for the book tour.
Meghan also said she was left “somewhat speechless” when the questions she sent Obama to answer for the back page of British Vogue’s September issue (which Meghan guest-edited!) were returned “as a thoughtful, reflective and beautifully curated narrative – a gentle reminder not of how but of why she has become such a globally respected public figure.” Meghan also revealed that the two women discussed the project “over a casual lunch of chicken tacos and my ever-burgeoning bump,” referring to her pregnancy with 1-year-old son Archie. – Source
