The 14th edition of the Women’s Forum Global Meeting is due to be held from 14-16 November 2018 at the Carrousel du Louvre in Paris. Under the theme “Bridging Humanity for Inclusive Progress”, the forum will unite global leaders, both male and female, to debate global social and economic challenges for a more inclusive and dynamic society.
An international organisation founded in 2005, the Women’s Forum for the Economy & Society organises international meetings, aims to strengthen the representation of women and encourage a greater male-female balance in all of society’s governing bodies. These events have several aims:
The issue is to be addressed in three main parts:
Giving each person the possibility of expressing themselves, sharing and amplifying a message and examining how education can change mentalities towards inclusive progress.
From century-old public institutions to first-year start-ups, organisations of all types and sizes face new and interconnected challenges in a rapidly changing world. Are they taking the right decisions to build their trustworthiness and collaborate in the way that this new world demands? This pathway explores how women’s leadership can encourage businesses, government institutions, as well as community-based, legal, spiritual or academic organisations, to keep up with the pace of change, stay fit for purpose and build the bridges we need in a complex world.
The creators of technologies such as social media networks and artificial intelligence have learnt that they can no longer think of their technologies as ‘neutral’. Technologies can reshape the ways we work, interact, and govern ourselves. With women’s perspectives and experiences in technology at the forefront, this pathway will explore how technologies can shape the futures of work and governance to build inclusive societies.
The Group will be present via several sessions and presentations:
“Establishing a respectful environment offering equal chances to all employees is an absolute prior condition to all organisations crowned with success. By joining the strategic committee of the Women’s Forum, after confirming our commitment to the “HeForShe” initiative, we would like to continue to contribute to the debate in order to guarantee the best conditions to all women by taking concrete measures to improve equality”, explained Marie-Claire Capobianco, Head of French Retail Banking, and Member of Executive Committee - BNP Paribas.
