2020 WIN D&I Corporate Forum

Creating an Inclusive & Thriving Organization 

Geneva  | 14 May 2020 - POSTPONED



Given the ongoing Coronavirus situation, we have made the decision to postpone this year's D&I Corporate Forum. Please make sure you are subscribed to our newsletter to receive the latest updates and information on our events. 

A world in transformation - how is new technology, the changing political climate, rapid pace of change and the gender revolution impacting business, society, you and me?


Join us as we gather to discuss how to create courageous, inclusive and innovative organizations - organizations that are actively shaping a future in which we all thrive. We are leading and working in an environment of unprecedented change at a global level whether it be technological innovation, automation and social changes.

We will begin by exploring, what do the larger trends and changes mean for companies and for women as individuals? We gather to look at the highest of visions, strategies and best practices and to explore how to accelerate progress. We will also uncover what each and every one of us needs to do to create an organization that is inclusive and that will form a sustainable future.


How do we overcome the hurdles that prevent us from being ourselves, feeling valued, speaking out and stepping up? What are the meaningful innovations that can stem from a culture of inclusion? We gather to look at best practices and to explore how to accelerate progress.
