A global conference on Business’ Role in Reaching the Sustainable Development Goals on Women’s Economic Empowerment 

New Connections is global conference to discuss ways of achieving Sustainable Development Goal 5 on gender equality. Women's economic empowerment is a core part of this global agenda, and a key challenge is removing gender-based barriers to positions of leadership.

Unlocking the potential of women's leadership will make the world more prosperous, more sustainable and more just. To achieve this, the business community will have to make gender equality part of their own agenda.

We ask: How do businesses benefit from promoting women's leadership? Why are so few women business leaders? How can we change it?

In order to find answers, we have invited speakers from across the globe to share their experiences and perspectives. We want to create new connections to learn and inspire each other.
Read about our speakers below. Further speakers will be added over the next week. Please register to receive an update when the program is finalized.
We will serve coffee before the program starts at 09:00. After 13:00 there will be standing lunch and opportunities to continue discussions.

We hope you will join the conversation!
