The 19th Global Women In Leadership (WIL) Economic Forum is bringing together up to 500 global male and female business leaders, policy makers, as well as young female professionals and entrepreneurs. They’re gathering to dissect the challenge of diversity, share experiences and produce actionable strategies to strive for women’s economic empowerment.

Endorsed by the UAE Ministry of Economy for the past three years, the forum has championed the recognition of women as key economic drivers for over a decade.

Held under the theme of ‘The Butterfly Effect – From Intent to Impact’, this year’s edition discusses women’s empowerment, philanthropy, entrepreneurship, Diversity & Inclusion and more.
