Who we are
The Global Summit™ is facilitated by 501c(3) nonprofit, Empowerment WORKS and brought to life by a diverse eco-system of citizens, businesses and organizations, called Partners In Empowerment (PIE), united in action for a thriving world.
From Rallyteam to Dancing Freedom, our global partner community brings the technological solutions, diversity of perspectives and skills needed to transcend the social, economic, & environmental status quo.
Autonomous, free from governmental, religious, political or any other singular agenda, The Global Summit provides a neutral platform for worldwide collaboration advancing integrative governance, philanthropic and economic solutions that honor all voices – and all life – from the ground up.
What we do
Through our biennial event series and year-round, on-and-offline collaboration support system, The Global Summit unites social innovators of all different levels to interact in focus groups and think tanks, helping shape a new locally-led, global operating system for the 21st century and beyond.
