Meet the 2013 Rising Talents!
10.10.2013 by Women's Forum
The Rising Talents Initiative aims to distinguish highly talented young women under the age of 40 who are on their way to becoming influential figures in our economies and societies. This initiative is a commitment to promote women leaders and bring the vision of rising generations to the Forum.
This year, 16 young women have been invited to join the Rising Talents network — which now includes more than 125 members and offers networking opportunities year-round — and to attend the 2013 Women’s Forum Global Meeting. They work in business, in community and humanitarian associations, in science, politics and the arts, and all have demonstrated real capacity to carry through ambitious projects in both their personal and professional lives.
