To bring together the innovators of today and tomorrow to explore the evolving values relevant to the next generation of leaders. We aim to inspire and energise the leaders of tomorrow and create a supportive global forum for them.
Much like the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting in Davos, our mission is to discuss the key issues faced today and to consider how progress can be made. However, at this Women of the Future Summit, we will do so through the lens of a new generation of leaders, exploring how the shifts in culture and leadership style reflect global challenges in a different light, creating new ideas and opportunities.
“Our mission is to help a generation of women make a difference. We want their voices to be heard and their dreams to become reality. We want to explore how women around the world can work together, so that the world is a better place for them having played their part.” Pinky Lilani CBE DL
