On Monday, the 54th Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF) is set to kick start from January 15–19 in Davos, Switzerland. The WEF will host dialogue sessions with political leaders, business executives, academics, and other influential figures to discuss and address pressing global issues.
At the WEF, India will open its first-ever “We Lead” lounge to emphasise the benefits of investing in women’s leadership, which directly strengthens the nation’s economy.
It highlights women leaders, the India Engagement Centre, pavilions by Maharashtra, Telangana, Tamil Nadu, and Karnataka, and the IT majors from Wipro, TCS, Infosys, and HCLTech demonstrating the potential of AI and technology.
It will focus on India’s part in the “We Lead” Lounge and India’s journey in women-led development. Additionally, to support the women’s leadership, it would organise a variety of gender-related discussions and also host a fireside chat on “investing in women.”.
Union Minister for Women and Child Development Smriti Irani will inaugurate the WeLead Lounge as part of the Indian delegation. The Ministry of Women and Child Development will oversee it with assistance from the Confederation of Indian Industry, which is funded along with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
