IE Business School is pleased to announce a new collaborative agreement with the Women’s Forum, an organization based in Paris, France that promotes women’s vision on the economic and social issues that matter most and that are at the heart of the most compelling concerns of our times. Rated by the Financial Times in 2007 as one of the world’s top five international most influential forums, the Women’s Forum for the Economy and Society has become in only three years an international must-attend event.
At its third edition last October, the Women’s Forum Global Meeting organized in Deauville (France) reached a new dimension. It welcomed nearly 1,200 leaders and opinion trendsetters from all walks of life – the economy, politics, culture or academia. Participants represented over 70 countries; there were 150 speakers of international renown and a programme containing over 60 lectures, debates and workshops.
In an attempt to integrate the future generation of leaders, the Women’s Forum invites every year an International Student Delegation to attend its flagship Global Meeting in Deauville. The International Student Team aims at opening the Women’s Forum to a selected number of students to create links between the 1,200 women leaders and the future generation of businessmen and women. It is a unique opportunity for young students to attend and contribute to an exclusive event. It is the chance for those students to meet influential leaders and conduct research with a team of international students from high-ranking universities. The Women’s Forum will welcome two female MBA students from IE Business School in Deauville from October 16th to 18th. They will be part of a group of 20 students from all over the world that have been specially selected because of their outstanding profiles and keen interest in promoting women’s issues. IE Business School is delighted to participate in this special initiative.
