2024 APPLICATIONS

As we gear up for the Women's Forum Global Meeting in October 2024 in Paris, we're excited to welcome a new cohort of 15 Rising Talents who will represent the next generation of female leaders. Our goal is simple: to highlight the excellency and achievements of young women who are making a positive change in their communities, the environment, the corporate world, government in technological innovation or the fields of the arts. 

By joining us, you're not just propelling opportunities for your career, but also helping to support other women like you. 

 This year, we're particularly interested in hearing from women in industries that don't always get the spotlight, as we strive to create a more diverse and inclusive community of Rising Talents.
