Women's Forum Global Meeting 2021

PARIS & ONLINE

We see women's issues as human issues

We believe that diversity - across genders, ages, cultures, professions and abilities - nurtures the ideal environment for creativity and innovation and generates positive economic and social impact. 

That’s why: 
We act to gather people from all walks of life 
to collaborate, generate new insights, develop innovative solutions, and foster long-lasting change. 

We act to promote women’s fundamental role in the economy and society 
through concrete initiatives to tackle systemic gender inequality and discrimination. 

We act to influence international stakeholders, 
launching calls to action and encouraging decision-makers in private and public sectors to commit to inclusion and equality.

THE 21ST CENTURY NEEDS EVERYONE ON BOARD

5 DAYS: PROGRAMME AT-A-GLANCE 

HER AND NOW: UNITING PURPOSE & POWER FOR EQUALITY 

Our annual Global Meeting programme is a platform to highlight and celebrate women’s leadership, a culmination of the year’s work on key issues where women are disproportionately affected and where women have the potential to lead outsize change, and a launchpad for new direction and initiatives. We bring changemakers and thought leaders together to shape an inclusive future that is challenged and inspired by provocative questions and reflections. 

When we unite purpose and power, how do we challenge and alter pre-existing power dynamics?  How do we draw on the strength of intersecting issues and identities, uncover new purpose at these intersections, and tap into new models of collective power to discover what the world needs now?

A just green future

Women’s leadership is key to addressing climate change and achieving a low-carbon economy. Increasingly, it is also key to ensuring climate change action is just and inclusive -- that the shift to low-carbon solutions is accessible to all. 

How do we create an environment that enables climate justice and unlocks women’s leadership for inclusive climate progress?

Inclusive STEM and tech for good

Girls and women are still missing from STEM training and workforces, and the world is losing the chance to apply their diverse talents, perspectives and leadership to shaping a sustainable future. How can we inspire, retain and advance diverse perspectives in STEM, and what is the link between STEM skills, social mobility and decent work, and a positive impact on the world? More than that, how can we harness the power of technology for good and create the conditions for technology to foster inclusive economies and societies?

Equal access to health

Access to health is not yet equitable for all. By paying attention to intersecting identities and other social, behavioural, cultural and economic determinants of health, and by unlocking the health leadership of women, can we shape a better, more inclusive future of health in the post-Covid world?
