The World Economic Forum recognizes the potential of women leaders as valuable human capital to invest in. A decade ago, our research and Women2Watch program set out to cultivate women leaders who are solving the future of business. We have since realized that purposeful business ventures drive complex initiatives that uncover new revenue streams.
Looking ahead, our purpose is to educate brands on modern work, cultivate underrepresented women leaders, and connect globally while reducing our carbon footprint. Our community attracts members and partners who align with our purpose, fostering collaboration and driving the momentum to master something new.
We are thrilled to announce the launch of Women We Watch. This groundbreaking accelerator program empowers and propels women-led ventures at the forefront of innovation.
