Founded in 2005, the Women's Forum for the Economy and Society is the world's leading platform featuring women's views and voices on major social and economic issues. Deploying women's experience and expertise across all generations and geographies, it offers practical discussions on how to overcome barriers and create new horizons and opportunities, as well as broad, rich and edgy debate on important ideas. The Women's Forum also promotes the advancement of women world-wide via business and social networks.
The Women’s Forum for the Economy and Society Meetings highlight remarkable women and men from around the world who are involved in politics, business, civil society and academia. Its annual Global Meeting features novel ideas from advanced and emerging nations in a format that combines plenary and smaller sessions as well as the Discovery Program, a uniquely vibrant content relay of discussions, interactive sessions and practical workshops. The Women's Forum Regional Meetings echo this footprint in terms of gender and sector representation, with a sharper focus on specific regional issues.
In addition to these essential meetings, the Women's Forum for the Economy and Society expresses its commitment to women's progress throughout the year via a range of Initiatives set up in partnership with corporations, media groups and non-governmental organizations. These long-term initiatives seek to empower women through entrepreneurship and education, by fast-tracking young talent, amplifying women's voices in the media, promoting adaptive leadership characteristics and showcasing CEOs who champion the empowerment and advancement of women.
Based in Paris, the Women's Forum is a subsidiary of Publicis Groupe and is supported by corporate partnerships.
