Meet the Co-Chairs 

True progress can be made when leaders work together towards a common purpose. The Reykjavík Global Forum ? Women Leaders is just 25 days away, and we would like to introduce you to some of our distinguished Co-Chairs.

These accomplished leaders include: Amina J. Mohammed, Deputy Secretary General of the United Nations, Katrín Jakobsdóttir, Prime Minister of Iceland, Michelle Bachelet, United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, and Pedro Sánchez, President of the Government of Spain.

Our Co-Chairs have advised on the Forum programme and have ensured that this year’s convening will be one of our best.

Congratulations to Conversationist Maria Ressa! 

Our network of Conversationists is a venerable who’s who of world leaders and pioneers. Journalist Maria Ressa is no exception. She was TIME Magazine’s 2018 Person of the Year and a Reykjavík Global Forum Conversationist in both 2019 and 2020.

For her efforts to safeguard freedom of expression, Maria Ressa is now the co-recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize 2021. Let’s take a look back to her discussion on the role of journalism.
