Educate, Elevate, Empower: Investing in Girls and Women

Share

Details

During this session we will discuss toolkits for empowerment, paths from literacy to leadership, and the road from poverty to profit. Our conversation will acknowledge the barriers women have faced globally and the biases society often conceals, while also shining a light on the hidden figures that have paved, and continue to pave, the way for growth and progress. Building upon historic initiatives from the recent past, leaders across sectors will explore the next chapter in uniting to invest in universal education for girls, closing the gender pay gaps across industries, and elevating the percentage of women in the C-suite and boardroom. Our stage will be a place where outrage and optimism meet, and where fairness and equality are the mandates.
