Advancing Women’s Leadership: A Global Networks Forum

Miami, Florida | NOV 17-19, 2015

Women make up a little over half the world’s population, but their contribution to measured economic activity, growth, and well-being is far below its potential, with serious macroeconomic consequences. Fully integrating women from all races into a nation’s economy is essential for society to flourish. As stated on the UN Women website: “gender equality is not only a basic human right, but its achievement has enormous socio-economic ramifications. Empowering women fuels thriving economies, spurring productivity and growth”.

Motivated to create solutions for such issues, KFLA is collaborating in the design of the first Global Leadership Network Forum, envisioned to spark a powerful women-for-women worldwide network. The Forum will count with the presence of approximately 200 fellows from the prestigious Ashoka, Eisenhower, Kellogg, Harvard Loeb, and Marshall Memorial programs, which are connected to approximately 11,500 total fellows worldwide, who in turn hold leadership positions in more than 80 countries.

The objectives of this Forum are to increase networking opportunities amongst these fellows and to promote women’s leadership development, women’s rights and empowerment locally and globally; helping therefore to create a better world not just for women but also for all. If you are interested in attending, there is still limited space available. See More and Register Today »
