Bridging the gap: A call to the G7 for inclusive progress
Inspired by women’s leadership, the Women’s Forum for the Economy & Society continues to bring a distinctly female perspective to addressing the issues affecting all of humanity and engaging for impact towards resolutions.
Women’s Forum Canada was a unique opportunity to generate concrete ideas to inform and influence the agenda of the G7 Summit. It addressed a range of global issues, including gender equality, by unlocking the transformative potential of women’s leadership. It focused on topics such as the role of the private sector in fostering inclusive growth, scaling investment in women-led businesses, urban planning as a accelerator of climate action, the social implications of technological change and many more.
