21st Edition of Women in Leadership Economic Forum WIL
Women in Leadership Economic Forum (WIL) by Naseba, the largest female economic empowerment platform in the Middle East
According to industry reports, gender empowerment means higher growth, a reduction in inequality, an improvement in the strength of the economy and a more diversified work force. It has been established that more women in the workplace could boost economy by up to 35%.
Sophie Le Ray, CEO of Naseba, said, "Change is rippling through business and social spheres. However, only when talk turns to action, will we see a level playing field once and for all. In addition to support the development of gender equity in society, WIL Forum is a platform for people and organisations with bold ideas, vision for progress, in a post #metoo era where the gender divide discussion has finally made it to the boardroom. We (men and women) cannot afford to lose this momentum and must leave our society in a better shape than we found it".
WIL Economic Forum will bring to the fore regional and international leaders who are pioneering new possibilities in their fields to positively impact and promote a gender inclusive economy. Plenary discussions debating game changing mega trends such as the future of the workforce, AI and gender bias, migration, education as an inclusion tool will alternate with highly interactive breakout sessions giving practical takeaways and toolkits to the audience on a variety of topics such as: managing a corporate career, connecting and building an effective network.
