This World Leaders Forum program features a moderated panel discussion aiming to shine a spotlight on the ways women are leading the world to meet the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and to foster a discussion about what is needed to mobilize others to deliver this ambitious agenda. The program will raise important questions about this issue, and through a cross section of women leaders from the private and public sectors, we will discuss possible answers and highlight diverse examples where women’s leadership is making significant contributions toward the Global Goals. The panel discussion will be followed by a question and answer session with the audience.
