Women Economic Forum to engage 500 women across 50 countries in Canada chapter

WEF is happening in Vancouver from November 16th -19th November 2017 in conjunction with the Vancouver International South Asian Film Festival: “Women Leading New Global Thinking & Change”. Women Leading New Global Thinking & Change will be held over four days during the film festival at the same venue with its own curation done by the Women Economic Forum (WEF) team from Delhi. It will attract over 500 women from across not just Canada but at least 50 countries across the world.


The deliberations will be across a range of subjects that concern modern  society, entrepreneurship, innovation, leadership, environment,  inclusivity and tolerance, values and family. This will be done over  many sessions in the four days and will broadcast live globally to  thousands of people. It will also be our humble privilege to confer on  the Governor and some senior government persons the Women Economic Forum award of “Iconic Leaders of the Decade in Public Service”. We will also present “women of the Decade” awards to leading women in Business and public life.

WEF is associated with the global movement of the ALL Ladies League, an "internet" of women with over 70,000 members across 150 countries, having circles or chapters of  self-help and support with a culture of sisterhood. The aim of the WEF  conferences is to foster an empowering ecosystem of conversations and  connections among women and supportive men  so that we can all together make a bigger difference in society and  with our soulfulness and strengths. WEF holds about 12-18 conferences  throughout the year and around the world in association with local  partners.

Speaking for the Women Economic Forum, Dr. Harbeen Arora, founder and Global Chairperson said, "The aim at WEF is to help women expanding  their business opportunities and increase their influence and  innovation through peer exchange, learning, networking and being  inspired by thinkers, doers, and achievers. All of us have excellence  within us. And WEF helps encourage, nurture and manifest it." 

Mannu  Sandhu who is the host for WEF British Columbia Canada Nov 16 - 19th 2017  and ALL Chair British Columbia, Canada added that she was proud to have  been able to bring Women Economic Forum to British Columbia for the first time.
