CSW side event - Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking: effective response for women and girls

      a forum for transformative leadership

Why Leadership Matters?

We are entering a new era where the role of women as peace builders in all sectors is needed more than ever.


It is well established that the economic empowerment of women isn't just good for women, it's good for everyone. Likewise, there is a growing body of evidence (McKinsey & Co) showing that when more women sit at decision-making tables, better decisions are made.

“I feel empowered by meeting all those inspirational women coming from different backgrounds who had to come over so many barriers to be able to reach where they are. Amazing stories! It was a great day of networking, learning and being inspired to lead into the future.”

“Congratulations on a beautifully organised event.  The food was fabulous, speakers inspiring, and the structure of the event was great. Leaving lots of time for attendees to meet and converse was an absolute highlight as well. What an amazing group of women were in attendance. I enjoyed every minute of my time.  WFWP is doing a great job."

“It was an uplifting event which clearly demonstrated many of the benefits and strengths of women's leadership. Each of the speakers represented different backgrounds and interests, yet each were similarly inspiring as they stepped us through the motivating factors of their lives, especially how each lead by example."

“Marvellous stories of women who have shown leadership in their  professional careers, as well as within their service to community. A lot to take away from the Assembly, would recommend it to anyone.”
