Panel 1: From Girls to Leaders
Education, access to opportunities and a proactive support system play a vital role in enabling girls to “dream big” about leadership roles and how they can navigate towards achieving them. Much of this stems from the prevalent culture, expectations of family, peers and perceived roles. This panel will look at the often unspoken challenges faced by girls and young women today.

When leadership is more diverse and inclusive the world view changes and when women are more equally represented there is a positive reaction.
