Women Sustainability Forum
October 19 @ 5:00 pm – 11:00 pm
In collaboration with partners and investors, the Women Sustainability Forum (in-situ and online) aims to discuss best practices, impact research and entrepreneurial endeavors concerning women, sustainability, leadership and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Women Sustainability Forum has taken the form of workshops, seminars and group discussions in Latin America, Africa and Asia-Pacific.
The Forum is intended to discuss case studies that cut across various areas of sustainability science, policy and practice. The way that women are represented or challenged within disruptive industries and challenging environments, the linkages with the industry and socio-environmental sustainability issues, attraction and retention of women in sustainability at the workplace, inclusive sustainable business models, women entrepreneurs and implications for their livelihoods, for example, are some of the topics the forum covers.
The Exceptional Women in Sustainability Award will be presented, in this forum, to outstanding women contributing to sustainable development through their work. We have a dedicated award solely for women as we recognize the gendered norms and barriers women still face and the doubled effort for impacts our inspirational futurists are making.
