Join us for the 2-day conference focussing on the economic empowerment of women vital for recovery from Covid and achieving gender equality

We all benefit from a more inclusive and equitable economy

We will bring together thought leaders representing civil society, the private sector, public sector and academia, including business leaders, civic leaders, and entrepreneurs. The conference will connect those across the globe striving for a gender-balanced economy. It will create an environment for delegates to learn, motivate, inspire, and support each other through work that keeps up the momentum for change.

It’s a great opportunity to learn, be inspired and engage with thought leaders, and to ask questions and put forward your views on how we recover from Covid-19 and achieve gender equality in the economy, work, and business.

You will have the chance to build new relationships with those who have a shared interest in advancing women’s business ownership and success and to be part of the movement for change. Key areas of focus will be captured, and actions monitored so we can report on the progress catalysed by the conference delegates, our supporters, and our sponsors.
