Theme: The Future
So much has changed for women in the past 30 years—what are our goals for the 30 years to come?

We are at a pivot point. We are a generation who has gained access to opportunities unimaginable for our mothers and grandmothers. And we have also inherited a world on the brink of environmental catastrophe—rife with violence and poverty.

Will it be an era of hope or one of despair? What will our daughters (and sons) have to say about the contributions we have made? What are the five most important issues we face? The five most important things we can achieve?

Join us as we talk about the future. Hear esteemed women leaders such as Her Royal Highness Queen Rania of Jordan give advice to young women based on her reflections on the past few decades. Watch Shalini Kantayya’s film about two different women in two different countries sharing the same struggle… Hear Marisa Monte’s song about the Profeta Gentileza – the Prophet of Kindness and how kindness generates kindness… And join the conversation!

As a generation, what will be our legacy to the world?

What will be yours?
