WOMEN RULE SUMMIT 2019

With a longstanding interest in women empowerment, POLITICO is delighted to present the 2nd edition of its Women Rule Summit.

With the recent mid-term elections in the U.S and the upcoming European elections in May, this promises to be exciting times to reflect on the progress achieved by women at the political and corporate level, and revive the debate on women empowerment.

Some of the key questions that will be tackled during this high-level event include:

  • Will women get to lead the European Union in 2019-2024?
  • Which organizational changes and policies have proved the most successful for women empowerment?
  • How can we involve men in the conversation on gender equality?
  • Which threat does the rise of far-right parties pose to gender equality?

Building on the success of last year’s edition and our Women Rule series, the 2019 Women Rule Summit will gather 130+ attendees and feature unique networking opportunities, inspirational keynote speeches, thought-provoking debates and practical breakout sessions on important matters we explore in our journalism.
