About us

Founded in 2005, the Women's Forum for the Economy and Society has been the world's leading platform featuring women's views and voices on major social and economic issues.

Women’s Forum meetings gather together remarkable women and men from politics, business, civil society and academia, for the purpose of showcasing stories of workable solutions in different countries and contexts.

The annual Women’s Forum Global Meeting welcomes to Deauville, France, more than 1300 participants and 600 organizations from 70 countries. It features novel ideas from advanced and emerging nations in a format that combines plenary and smaller sessions together with The Discovery — a uniquely vibrant content relay of discussions, interactive sessions and practical workshops.

More exciting events are planned for 2015. Women’s Forum Italy 2015 will take place is 29-30 June within the context of Expo Milano 2015. Upcoming Women’s Forum event will also take place in Brussels. A special CEO Champions meeting will take place in Brazil. And in 2016, the inaugural Women’s Forum Dubai kick off in the United Arab Emirates, as the first major Women’s Forum Event in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. Other events will also take place in Mexico and Japan.

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.

Based in Paris, the Women's Forum is a subsidiary of Publicis Groupe and is supported by corporate partnerships.
