Global WIL Forum 2018


In 2009, the first Global WIL Economic Forum broke new ground in the Middle East by giving a platform for women leaders to gather and advance gender diversity.

Since then, the forum has traveled across continents and evolved much.

While staying committed to its initial objective to champion gender diversity, the Global WIL Economic Forum now shines a light on other economic imperatives such as the inclusion of all and social impact.

Endorsed and opened by the UAE Minister of Economy for the past five years, the forum is bringing together 1,000 like-minded individuals from around the world, to shape the economy of tomorrow.

This year, the program digs into impact investing, social entrepreneurship, STEM, and arts & culture – addressed by regional and global leading organisations, policy makers and story-tellers.
