Session 2 – Influential Women in Leadership Panel


The UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) target increased opportunities for women in education, the economy, politics, and public life. However, there is still a gap between these goals and the realization of women’s full leadership potential. Moreover, public discourse does not adequately acknowledge women’s leadership, interpersonal and decision-making skills as resources for development and peace. Five prominent panelists discussed how women’s leadership can contribute to diverse sectors of society.
