The wheels of gender equality are in motion in the UK but there is evidently still a long way to go -- "subtle" and institutional bias persist, women still get paid 18 per cent less than men and only 25 per cent of UK STEM graduates are female.

The world is moving fast and we need to act faster by engaging women with long-term solutions. Merging my academic focus on education and economics with my passion for arts, I will use the G(irls)20 opportunity to contribute to my community by inspiring girls through three "I's" to achieve economic empowerment:

Many in Canada overlook the importance of having a well-developed physical education programs in our public schools. There is often the assumption that "gym class" isn't a priority and should be limited to provide more class time for linguistics and mathematics. Although these subjects are extremely important, physical education is just as critical and should not be overlooked.

While many of us are fortunate enough to take education for granted, not everyone can get the education they need. I believe that technological and pedagogical innovation can help break down barriers and make learning more accessible, engaging and inspiring.

This past summer, I covered the 7th G(irls)20 Summit. As the Official Global Correspondent I learnt about the G20 and how it operates. I worked with high potential young women from around the world to develop and formulate a detailed communiqué, which was presented to G20 Leaders before they met in China.

These enterprising, entrepreneurial and gutsy women play a major role in supporting families in Pakistan, yet officially, they are invisible. A large number of these women are often poor and engaged in either home-based economic activity or agricultural work leading to a lack of documentation.

China intended this summit be a break from the past, a substance discussion on global issues, with a focus on oft-neglected international development. This would indeed have been very timely, energizing support for Agenda 2030 and a big plus for China's leadership. However, it never seemed to happen.

In México, extraordinary wealth and heart-breaking poverty exist side by side. It is a land of harsh contradictions -- skyscrapers and wood houses, modern-day Internet and illiteracy. Years ago, when I used to think about this, I always asked myself; with all our diverse natural resources and hard-working labor force, why are we in this situation?

Being a female worker in Indonesia is not easy. Juggling life as a mother, wife, child, and worker, turns your days into endlessly tiring routines. Although Indonesian women have been living like this for so long, it is time that the suffering ends and new initiatives arise which both empower women while still giving them a chance to spend more time with their families. One solution would be to encourage more and more women to become entrepreneurs.

Attending a G20 meeting is a rare opportunity for a teenage girl. It's an honour to be at an event where decisions are made that affect our entire planet and to have the chance to meet key decision makers. At every chance, I'm making sure to talk about the next generation's issues.
Girls are judged on their appearances at times when men are for valued for their ideas; male speakers are viewed as more authoritative than their female counterparts, and women are interrupted more often than men. I have witnessed this throughout my life.

The reality is that in Toronto, as in most police services across the continent, the vast majority of serving police officers are exceptional public servants. The bad news is that reality is entirely irrelevant. People don't form judgments or base their decisions and actions on reality. They base them on their perceptions. And a fast-growing segment of society in Toronto, in Chicago, in New York City, in Ferguson, in cities and towns across North America, perceive their police services to be acting for their own benefit -- not society's.

What can G20 leaders do to economically engage and empower girls and women? Put simply, they need to invest in the re-structuring of the educational, business and political systems which are set up to inhibit female empowerment. Education is the essential catalyst for this process. Education is essential if a girl is to become independent.

Continuing legal differences between the entitlements of men and women in economies across the globe has a negative impact on female work force participation. Some say that women should suck it up, and do a different job. Why? If men are entitled to pursue any career they like, why shouldn't women have the same opportunities?

For Trudeau, the reality of jumping from the skillet of an election campaign into the fire of world diplomacy and emergency response must be something of a foreboding transition. And yet he has brought an aura of freshness and innovation to the G20 that likely couldn't come at a better time.

As soon as Trudeau walks in, everyone, and I mean everyone including CEOs, politicians and senior level bureaucrats from around the world move in his direction. They want to shake the hand of, and take a selfie with, the newly elected Prime Minister of Canada.
Friday's attacks in Paris were set to dominate the summit discussions.
