Launched in 2010, CEO Champions is an iconic initiative of the Women’s Forum for the Economy & Society, aiming to drive progress and accountability for women’s advancement in the private and public sectors. The peer-to-peer network presents a unique opportunity for CEOs to share best practices and experiences, underscore their organization’s commitment to women’s advancement and take the lead in the broader global economy and society.

CEO Champions members are active, highly committed participants who track and drive progress for women’s advancement through on-record mutual commitments and accountability. Now in its tenth year, the CEO Champions Initiative continues to pioneer as a high-level international platform that advocates for the inclusion of both women and men at the leadership level in the economy and society.
