The Women’s Forum Rising Talents Initiative, celebrating its 14th Anniversary in 2021, aims to distinguish highly talented young women who are on their way to becoming influential figures in our economies and societies. This initiative is a commitment to promoting women leaders and bringing the vision of rising generations to the Women’s Forum.
The Women’s Forum for the Economy & Society and its partners share a common belief: that the identification and nurturing of talent among women is critical for the future of global business and society. Each year, about 15 young women join the Rising Talents network and attend the Women’s Forum Global Meeting, benefiting from enhanced networking activities during the event prior to benefiting from the ongoing Alumni activities around the world.
Since its creation, the Rising Talents network has brought together more than 300 women coming from over 50 different countries, representing a diversity of sectors. Amongst these talents have risen ministers, CEOs and executives of important companies, artists, and NGO leaders, who all help drive women's economic empowerment in their sphere of work.
