POST EVENT REPORT
DARING TO BUILD A BETTER FUTURE
In 2009, the inaugural Women in Leadership Economic Forum broke new ground in the Middle East by offering a platform for women leaders to gather, build valuable connections and advance the gender parity discussion in the workplace.
Since then, the forum has traveled to Saudi Arabia, China, Malaysia and India, and evolved to a global economic forum, bringing together men and women from both private and public sector, across all industries, with a common vision of building sustainable and inclusive economies and societies.
While staying committed to its initial objective to champion gender diversity, the WIL Economic Forum now shines a light on several imperatives such as the inclusion of the youth and people with determination, social impact, entrepreneurship, arts and culture, innovation and technology, education and philanthropy.
Endorsed by the UAE Minister of Economy, the forum is bringing together 400+ like-minded individuals from around the world, to shape the economy of tomorrow.
This year, the 21st edition of WIL Economic Forum invites all participants to DARE TO BUILD A BETTER FUTURE, to lead in times of constant change with vision and courage, to learn from those organizations that are closing the gender gap and to build a community of game changers.
