Wo+Men’s Leadership Conference 2017

Saturday, 10 June 2017

Whereas women have made great strides in business careers, their rise up the corporate ladder is still not easy. The UN Secretary-General’s High-Level Panel on Women’s Economic Empowerment (2016) stressed that addressing this gender imbalance “requires local and global action by all parts of society often working in partnerships to achieve scalable and sustainable impact”. We established Wo+Men’s Leadership Initiative as a way to forge and lead these collaborations and work collectively to learn from each other and make the changes needed to foster a gender-balanced workforce globally.
