Are you ready to empower and be empowered? Do you want to hear, engage, and exchange ideas with women leaders across sectors worldwide?

Join the 2020 Forum’s Leaderstalk sessions: virtual, interactive conversations led by our partners and addressing the urgent barriers and challenges to equality between men and women.

For three days, November 9-11, these conversations will focus on topics of equity and sustainability, the power of strategic dialogue and multilateral commitments, and personal experiences from leaders about best practices for improving decision-making.

Organised into a limited number of 75-minute programming blocks, the sessions will be held through Hopin (the Forum’s virtual venue) under the ‘sessions’ tab.
