27 – 28 April 2016
Building on the theme of Co-creando junt@s / Co-creating together, the first edition of the Women’s Forum Mexico emphasizes actions and solutions to open new social and economic opportunities, and the need and importance of involving everyone in processes of change.
The event, to be held on 27-28 April 2016 at the Hyatt Regency Polanco in Mexico City, will gather more than 500 women and men leaders from Mexico, the United States and Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, and representing all major sectors of society.
In Oct. 2014 the Women’s Forum for the Economy & Society welcomed at its annual Global Meeting in Deauville, France, a group of 50 Mexican women and men business leaders, entrepreneurs, scientists, artists, not to mention jurists and policymakers. Together we have decided to stage our first Women’s Forum Mexico on 27-28 April 2016 in Mexico City.
We expect 500+ women and men leaders to attend from Mexico, the United States, Latin America and Europe. They will come together first to discuss, How to ensure that women are included with men in the opportunities being created by reforms in the Mexican economy, whether in energy, finance, telecoms, infrastructure, etc.?
Yet for local leaders, “co-creating together” will take more than talking inclusion. So the second overarching focus of our meeting is, What more is needed to improve women’s ability to help create new economic opportunities? How can we draw more women out of the informal sector, encourage more women to become researchers and successful business owners, and create more equitable career opportunities for those working in corporations and the public sector. We also focus on issues of violence and machismo as forces limiting and harming women and their families, and how to affect the culture holding back women’s progress. And we seek on all issues to bring men leaders to the table with their women counterparts – enabling champions for a better Mexico for all to stand up and be recognized together. Our approach throughout is pragmatic and solutions-oriented, including the vision necessary to create positive social change.
The Forum will be in English and Spanish.
The Program: Overview
Women’s Forum Mexico delegates will discuss how to ensure that women are included with men in the opportunities being created by reforms in the Mexican economy, whether in energy, finance, telecoms, etc.?
Co-creando junt@s / Co-creating together will take more than talking inclusion. “What more is needed to improve women’s ability to take up and contribute to creating new economic opportunities?” is therefore the second overarching focus of the meeting.
This means addressing why and how to draw more women out of the informal sector, encourage more to become researchers and successful business owners, and create equitable career opportunities for those working in corporations and the public sector.
