SWITZERLAND – Pearl is about to join her colleagues in Davos for this year’s World Economic Forum’s gathering. She contributes to the increase of gender equality serving as the Council on Women’s Empowerment Manager, Women Leaders and Gender Parity for the World Economic Forum, an independent international organization, tied to no political, partisan or national interests, committed to improving the state of the world by engaging business, political, academic and other leaders of society to shape global, regional and industry agendas.
The Council on Women’s Empowerment has developed a compendium outlining how the advancement of women could help to address global challenges related to demography, conflict, leadership, food security, agriculture, sustainability and resource scarcity, as well as creating an open area on the Forum’s website for companies to share examples of the action they have taken to address the gender gap. Over the next 12 months, the Council will analyse and share public and private sector actions that have successfully narrowed the gender gap.
The World Economic Forum Annual Meeting, in Davos, is one of the key points of the Forum. This year it will happen from the 22nd of January until the 25th with the thematic focus of “The Reshaping of the World: Consequences for Society, Politics and Business”. The aim is to develop the insights, initiatives and actions necessary to respond to current and emerging challenges. For more information on this event click here.
