‘The Next Billion: Women & The Economy of the Future’ is the inaugural conference for an innovative new initiative, the Next Billion. This one-day conference will spark conversation, challenge assumptions and enable the sharing of practical solutions among senior corporate leaders. This dynamic topic will create a global, action-oriented community of private sector representatives focused on building their businesses by capitalizing on the potential of women as employees, executives, investors and consumers.
The evidence is clear, as is the message: when women do better, economies do better.
– Christine Lagarde
Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund at the World Economic Forum 2013
