Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 25 aprile 2018

On May 2nd, the 16th Annual International Women’s Forum (IWF) Cornerstone Conference will convene in Melbourne. This year’s theme, Evolution/Revolution, will explore our rapidly changing and adapting world. Experts and innovators from 33 nations will examine today’s most pressing global issues from genetics frontiers to human origins and the Evolution of Work. The two-day conference provides an important platform for women thought-leaders to exchange ideas, develop strategies, and leave positioned to push for meaningful change.“IWF conferences connect issues to action. They give local change-agents a platform alongside global thinkers, creating an enormous potential for progress,” said Teresa Weintraub, President, IWF and Managing Director, Merrill Lynch. “There is no other organization that consistently brings together this caliber of global women leaders both on the stage and in the audience.”
The Cornerstone Conference is held each year in a country outside of North America that is playing a critical role in shaping the future. With its unique past, unparalleled biodiversity, and increasing importance on the global stage, Australia represents a mixture of modernity and history: an ideal setting for discussions of change and growth.“This year’s conference will bring together experts across five continents to discuss evolution and adaptation, hallmarks of Australia’s past and present,” added Michelle Loader, Vice President, IWF Australia and Conference Co-Chair.In addition to the mainstage sessions, an interactive townhall will create an opportunity for these uniquely diverse and accomplished women to discuss sexual harassment around the globe. Academics, artists, activists, and business leaders will participate in a conversation to determine what’s next and how to sustain this #MeToo moment.
