HIGHLIGHTS FROM WOMEN’S FORUM GERMANY 2022
Time to commit for inclusive solutions
Last week, we were thrilled to gather our international community in Berlin for an inspiring and impactful Women’s Forum Germany.
We welcomed 350+ high-level representatives from public institutions, the private sector, and leading international organisations, together with 46 speakers and 30 Youth Ambassadors. With hundreds more joining online, our audience represented nearly 90 countries.
We know that gender equality is critical to building an inclusive, sustainable and thriving world. That’s why, together, we called on G7 Leaders to mainstream a gender perspective in their decisions and actions, in order to achieve the objectives of Germany’s G7 Presidency.

As always, our sincere thanks to our partners for standing by our side to make this event possible and for joining us in our mission. We are proud to welcome our new partners ABinBev and YPO to our community. Thank you to our inspiring speakers for sharing their insights with us and helping us to imagine forward-thinking economic and policy initiatives for societal change.
