Time to Act

It is indeed time to act for gender equality and break the glass ceiling once and for all.

Throughout the two days, many international actors and leaders spoke on key issues of the post-covid society, from the climate crisis to recent setbacks in women’s rights.







They shared their insights and promoted inclusive and equitable solutions, with a focus on 4 key areas: climate, health, empowerment and peace.

The Women’s Forum’s vision is to build a fairer, more inclusive world, where women’s voices are heard, in the same way as men’s, in the political, economic and public spheres.

During this edition, the focus was on concrete actions to act on major issues such as:

The fight against climate change is a no brainer. Our challenge in Europe, with the energy crisis, is the security of supply and affordability, however, it comes hand in hand with a sustainable energy. Let’s not oppose the two.

Charlotte Roule, CEO, Engie

Bias on age in the workplace is crucial to address. We need to debias in recruiting and career management.
