This year is the 10th edition of the Women’s Forum Global Meeting. We are celebrating by bringing together a truly outstanding group of speakers — trailblazers for human rights and women’s empowerment and pioneers and new innovators in business, education, and science and technology. Our aim? For participants be inspired by and discuss with these leaders about how we can contribute to more equitable economies and societies. Ours is a complicated and sometimes overwhelming, unjust, and violent world. It’s also a world where more women, in more contexts, have agency and can make a difference.
