Harnessing 21st Century Solutions: A Focus On Women

Little Rock, Arkansas, United States. 17-18, December 2012

 

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 explored the opportunities and challenges to addressing these issues by considering the following topics:

Equal rights in a global world. If equal rights for women are still a goal for democracies, how are they being implemented and enforced? How can this goal be sustained in times of crisis?

How are we addressing the existing challenges for women leaders to attain seats of power at both political and corporate decision-making tables?

Post the Rio+20 meeting, how will governments and the private sector be held accountable to enhancing women’s right to access and control of natural resources?

How can the consideration of cultural, religious and ethnic diversity be most effectively prioritized in gender analysis and used, at the local and international levels, when considering 21st century challenges and demands?
