HER AND NOW: UNITING POWER & PURPOSE FOR EQUALITY
Women’s Forum Global Meeting 2021
Paris & Online
The world needs women’s leadership, purpose, and power for positive impact. Yet the pandemic has widened the global gender gap which could now take 135 years to close, putting us on a collision course with other crises. We call on leaders from across generations, cultures, backgrounds and geographies to deliver an inclusive future. The future of our economies and societies depends on our collective action now.
The Women’s Forum Global Meeting is a moment to gather and grow, to reflect on the year’s lessons of resilience and hope, to lead and lift up others in purpose and power. It is a space for presenting data to shape conversations, launching new initiatives and offering recommendations for businesses and governments to take immediate action. Global challenges like economic inequality, climate change and unequal access to health require new models of purposeful leadership. By gathering people from all walks of life to collaborate, we will generate new insights, develop innovative solutions, and foster long-lasting change.
For the first time in our history, we are opening 10,000 virtual passes and 100 physical passes to engage youth. The world needs the leadership of a new generation, harnessing inclusion to more rapidly address humanity’s challenges, for a new generation – a generation that is more fired up than ever about human rights, economic, racial and gender justice, and the environment. Register as a virtual youth delegate here.
From November 15th-18th, we will begin the Global Meeting week with Virtual Sessions on our digital platform focusing on the themes of our Daring Circles: Climate Action, Technology, Health and Business.
On November 19th, we will gather in-person at the Carrousel du Louvre and virtually via our digital platform for a full day of Plenary Sessions, Discovery activities, networking, and so much more. In-person delegates will also join us for a cocktail and private evening visit of the Louvre Museum. We will also host the 11th edition of our iconic CEO Champions initiative, and host a high-level reception for our entire Rising Talents community.
We look forward to welcoming you soon in Paris!
