A two-day women’s forum was held in Paris from October 5-6, 2017 entitled: “Engage for impact! Daring to lead in a disrupted world.”
This year’s agenda are based on four pillars:
I. Embracing our humanity: In a disrupted world, it is the people at the heart of institutions and organizations who will ultimately make them fit for the future. This pillar looks at the relationship between organizations and the people they employ and serve, and how businesses and institutions can embrace their humanity to lead through disruption.
II. Harnessing technology: The impact of technology is not a technical issue – it’s a social one. We examine the social and economic implications of game-changing technologies, such as data analytics and artificial intelligence, how to diversify and enrich the environment that gives rise to new technologies, and how to better apply new technological developments to the pursuit of a better world.
III. Thriving through creativity: Creativity offers value at all scales – from personal fulfilment to world-changing invention. In this pillar, the most successful entrepreneurs, innovators, companies, and organizations share how they have systematically inspired and catalysed creativity and innovation.
IV. Shaping the future of work: The future of organizations depends on talent: engaging the right talent, with the necessary competencies and skills, and giving them the environment to succeed. This pillar looks at the competencies of the future and how businesses will find them, as well as how workplace environments and cultures engage and support workers to be committed and productive.
