This cultural boundary-crossing event will bring together expert women practitioners, policy makers, academics and analysts from the two sides of the Atlantic who engage in the study and practice of women’s leadership and gender diversity in decision making in different professional realms and positions.
The purpose of the annual event is to break the traditional silos of thinking and acting, and to embrace diversity of thought instead. Senior women from different countries and sectors in society (academics and researchers, business leaders, politicians, civil society representatives, networks leaders, journalists, artists, activists, etc.) will jointly reflect on the political, economic, social and societal leadership challenges in today’s complex world, and identify opportunities to advance women’s leadership, and their full participation in, and influencing of decision-making in their countries, organisations, and communities.
- to facilitate sharing and exchanging of different experiences and views on how to take women’s leadership to the next level (focus on solutions, best practices and concrete actions that make sense in today’s world);
- to apply contemporary, innovative research on women and leadership to inform practices with concrete strategies/actions in different sectors;
- to identify potential differences, tensions, and common grounds, to help amplify the voices and visibility of women in leadership;
- to explore different approaches, methodologies, and tools that stimulate cross-fertilization and mutual learning.
