Women's Forum Global Meeting 2018

For a society to flourish, the connections among its people must be strong. Our societies and economies are a web of relationships among people, organisations, institutions and ecosystems. Recent events and trends have widened many of the divisions between countries, political parties, religions, generations, among institutions and within communities. Healing the fractures that have propagated across society’s many dimensions requires reconciling diverse perspectives and advancing together towards a shared vision.

The Women’s Forum Global Meeting 2018 seeks to be part of that movement by examining global social and economic issues through the lens of bridging humanity. It looks to create the conditions to unlock fresh solutions through women’s leadership – especially for those challenges that disproportionately impact women – and contribute to a more inclusive world for all.

The programme is divided into three pathways representing how we can build a bridge to an inclusive world. Each pathway is explored through different session formats such as plenaries, roundtables and workshops.

  • Shifting mindsets
  • Reimagining organisations
  • Putting technology to work
