Forum welcome: a wake-up rethink call!

A range of speakers opened the 2013 Women’s Forum Global Meeting by calling on women and men around the world to rethink zero-sum competition as the single model for government and business, and to take a broader approach to the advancement of women’s equal rights.

Véronique Morali, President of the Women’s Forum for the Economy and Society said :

Our over-riding question is how we can best nourish creativity in the new, “open” world – with open source, open data, crowd-funding, crowd-sourcing, crowd-marketing and other big new trends. Our goal is to continue promoting the active participation of women, so that in a world which, more than ever, seeks innovative alternatives, women can be the agents of a movement of optimism, drive and economic and social change.
