REYKJAVÍK GLOBAL FORUM
The Reykjavík Global Forum – Women Leaders is both a convening and a community. Launched in 2018 under the heading of Power, Together, the forum convenes women leaders from all sectors, including politics, business, civil society, academia, the arts and media, to share ideas and solutions on how to further advance society towards equality and to promote and positively develop the number of women in leadership positions. Attracting hundreds of Conversationists each year, the Forum offers a unique lens into the best practices and proven solutions that leaders are deploying across sectors to achieve parity. We work with some of the most influential leaders, compelling speakers, and innovative problem solvers in the world.
On 13-14 November 2023, the Government of Iceland, and the Parliament of Iceland co-hosted the sixth annual Reykjavík Global Forum in partnership with Women Political Leaders (WPL), welcoming over 500 Conversationists from more than 80 countries in Iceland
The Reykjavík Global Forum will continue to convene leaders under the heading “Power, Together“ and the mission remains to empower more women to attain and retain power. This year’s theme will be Power, Together for Leadership. Major Forum themes include:
Digital Technology & Generative AI: The opportunities and challenges of the next generation of digital technology, including generative AI, privacy and the impact of disinformation on democracy.
The Future of Cities: How cities are innovating to create more equitable spaces for their citizens, including the impacts of climate change.
The Reykjavik Index: For the sixth year, the Index will be introduced by Kantar Public, including a breakout analysis on the Nordic countries, which generally score higher for gender equality. The forum will highlight additional global research studies that intersect with the Index
