It’s time to act for gender equality and break the glass ceiling once and for all.

The 17th annual Women’s Forum Global Meeting is taking place on 29-30 November 2022 at Palais Brongniart in Paris, France. We will gather around the theme Time to Act.

Over the course of our 2-day meeting, we will engage our international community of leaders and change makers on key issues of our post-pandemic world, from the climate crisis to the recent setbacks to women’s rights. We are convinced that international and multi-stakeholder cooperation is essential to finding equitable and inclusive solutions, particularly around 3 crucial areas: climate, health and peace. 

We look forward to welcoming inspiring agents of change from across sectors and countries, including: 

  • Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Author
  • Werner Baumann, CEO, Bayer
  • Thomas Buberl, CEO, AXA
  • Nadia Calviño, First Deputy Prime Minister & Minister for Economy and Digitalization, Spain
  • Rokhaya Diallo, Journalist, feminist & antiracist activist
