The Women’s Forum Global Meeting 2020: Virtual Edition
Beyond recovery: designing an Inclusive World
As the world is lurching towards an unknown new normal with the pandemic, the Women's Forum’s mission to redesign a more inclusive world becomes even more urgent and critical. When diversity might be at risk of losing its momentum worldwide, now is the time for us to take bolder action and foster inclusion in our businesses, communities and societies to tap into the power of our collective action. It is the time for us to embrace women’s leadership and leverage our collective ingenuity to fight existing challenges and co-create a brighter future for all. In this time of uncertainty, we strengthen our conviction to turn challenges into opportunities and explore new horizons to reinvent ourselves. With the very first virtual Global Meeting, this November will be an opportunity for us to meet again virtually after the crisis. We will continue our daring dialogues and cross-pollinate our ideas and innovations for an inclusive recovery where leaders and change-makers worldwide, both women and men, are inspired to redefine the norms, and reshape the new world map. We strive to bridge not only virtual and physical worlds, but also connect more than 25,000 change-makers from different sectors, across cultures and generation at this transformative Meeting. We invite you to join our community to take action and commitments to lead positive changes and to forge our future with a common purpose. Together, we will seize this moment to drive forward our inclusive progress!

Leadership for a more inclusive, resilient world
How can we seize the current moment to lead with purpose, dismantle existing hierarchies and build more equal and inclusive organisations, communities, economies and societies?
Ethical artificial intelligence
If designed by diverse teams and governed appropriately, AI and tech solutions in general can help shape a more inclusive world, even beyond the developed world and the workplace.
How can corporates & governments stand up for the economic empowerment & inclusion of under-represented groups and fully benefit from the recovery plan and other policies?
Scalable climate action
Transitioning to a greener economy creates opportunities to accelerate progress on equality & economic empowerment. How can women lead in building back better, not just faster?
Equal access to health
Women's leadership must be scaled up so that their diverse and representative perspectives can contribute to practice, policy and technological aspects of healthcare access.
