Club de Madrid 2012 Annual Conference | Little Rock, Arkansas. United States. 17-18 December 2012
Read the Final Report:
Women’s empowerment has significantly advanced in the last few decades. There is much to celebrate as women around the world increasingly gain the right to vote, to education, to property, amongst others, transforming them into autonomous members of society capable of changing their communities as well as securing their own personal and professional fulfillment. While progress is undeniable, there are a multitude of challenges that hinder the economic and political empowerment of women and prevent their full realization in public and private spheres.
The Club de Madrid convening will explore the opportunities and challenges to addressing these issues by considering the following topics:
We anticipate using the Club de Madrid platform to explore specific challenges to women’s broader participation in society given the current economic and political realities as well as identify and share best practices and recommendations that will allow governments and private sector to create enabling environments for women to realize their full economic and political potential.
The conference will be structured around two interconnected thematic strands – political and economic empowerment – each to be divided into specific policy areas for analysis. Plenaries will serve to set the scene as well as wrap-up, while specific policy areas will be explored within breakout sessions, allowing the Club de Madrid to facilitate dynamic exchanges with the active engagement of participants.
