19th Global WIL Forum

Endorsed by the UAE Ministry of Economy for the past four years, the 19th Global Women in Leadership (WIL) Economic Forum is bringing together up to 600 global male and female stakeholders to champion gender parity and celebrate women in leadership. Held under the theme “The Future of Everything”, this year’s forum will put a strong emphasis on sustainability, and the role of gender, cultural and ethnic diversity in driving economic prosperity. The program touches on key aspects of our modern society and explores diversity as the driving force of our collective future. Philanthropy and social impact, as well as education and arts and culture, will be central to the conversation. Designed to facilitate discussion, the program promotes innovative thinking and provides attendees with actionable strategies to further their personal development and nurture their professional growth. It revolves around three pillars: game changers, future builders, and storytellers.
