Building ​off ​the ​fantastic ​learnings ​and ​discussions ​from ​speakers ​such ​as ​Chelsea ​Clinton, ​Melanne ​Verveer, ​Soledad ​O’Brien, ​and ​Phumzile ​Mlambo-Ngcuka; ​we ​will ​continue ​to ​focus ​on ​the ​solutions. ​The ​event ​will ​take ​a ​deep ​dive ​into ​the ​many ​challenges ​that ​women ​and ​girls ​still ​face ​in ​attaining ​economic ​independence. ​Join ​over ​500 ​private ​and ​public ​sector ​leaders ​to ​explore ​empowerment ​solutions ​and ​the ​transition ​to ​sustainable ​and ​resilient ​positive ​impact.

In ​2015, ​we ​will ​focus ​on ​how ​to ​build ​a ​brighter ​future ​for ​women ​and ​girls ​around ​the ​globe. ​During ​the ​forum ​we ​will ​have ​expert-led ​discussions ​on ​issues ​such ​as ​agriculture, ​maternal ​health, ​STEM ​education, ​women ​as ​the ​individual ​contributor, ​and ​more. ​We ​will ​also ​explore ​the ​vital ​role ​that ​women ​and ​girls ​play ​in ​the ​economy ​and ​the ​role ​of ​the ​private ​sector ​in ​building ​a ​supportive ​ecosystem ​for ​empowerment.

Through ​the ​private ​and ​public ​sector, ​vital ​stepping ​stones ​have ​been ​put ​in ​place ​to ​help ​bring ​women ​and ​girls ​into ​positions ​of ​opportunity ​and ​independence. ​Don’t ​miss ​this ​powerful ​convening; ​join ​us ​on ​March ​4 ​and ​5 ​to ​continue ​to ​build ​that ​path ​to ​a ​brighter ​future ​and ​global ​prosperity.
