Flashback to the Women's Forum Global Meeting 2015!

14.03.2016

Clara Gaymard, President of the Women's Forum for the Economy & SocietyBuilding on the theme of Energizing the world!, the 11th edition of the Women’s Forum Global Meeting featured three agenda streams, each a major avenue where women leaders can join their peers, male and female, to enable our future:


Addressing vital needs

How are we going to address people’s vital needs – and not unequally, but rather by way of new methods to ensure access for all?


Crafting the future

Important scientific and technological advances already under way will further disrupt business models, even as they open exciting (if sometimes frightening) new socio-political prospects. How can we or should we engage with their multiple implications?


Creative fires

If we want to make a better world tomorrow, we have to listen to young people – whose world it will be – and to create the conditions to allow entrepreneurship and creativity to flourish. What are some of the best ways to accomplish this?


We were also delighted to feature our Women’s Forum initiatives in the Discovery: CEO Champions, Rising Talents, Women in Media, Women for Change, and the Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards. In 2015 the Women’s Forum Delegation came from Singapore, and we also had large groups attending from Tunisia and South Africa.
