Beginning yesterday, Monday Nov 9, through tomorrow, Wednesday November 11, running from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. EST daily, notable women speakers from around the world are speaking on important issues for all of us.

Speakers such as former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, veteran journalist Maria Ressa, former President of Malawi Joyce Banda, and Belarus opposition leader Svetlana Tikhanovskaya are among headliners, with many more women in many backgrounds with high levels of expertise grappling with questions of leadership amid the coronavirus pandemic and the world-wide tensions on many fronts.

Hundreds of women leaders are gathering virtually and you can join them still.

Topics For The Summit

This year, more than ever, we’re seeing the need for women in leadership arise. As women’s rights become threatened and as the lives of women of many races and nationalities are targeted by insufficient leadership, these women are taking up the call for truth and justice with strong voices.

Topics include workplace culture, why activism and skills matter for making a better world for the girls coming up after us, women’s empowerment, equality in government, digital healthcare, women in sports, and even topics on travel and how we will venture out from our homes again once the pandemic is over.

Who Is Speaking?

You can see the whole schedule and program for the event on the forum’s website, showing when each speaker will be live, who will be interacting with them, and what topics they’ll cover.

Some highlights include names you’ve heard of, such as Hillary Clinton, making this her first public speaking engagement to follow the 2020 U.S. election. Others include discussions on climate change, Aminata Touré, the prime minister of Senegal, Angélique Kidjo, singer/songwriter and goodwill ambassador of UNICEF, Anita Bhatia the Deputy Executive Director of UN Women, Anuradha Gupta the Deputy CEO of Gavi, The Vaccine Alliance, and Erna Solberg the Prime Minister of Norway.
