To mark the 25th anniversary of the U.N. Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing this month, Washington Post Live and The Rockefeller Foundation are bringing together prominent global leaders to discuss where sustainable progress has been made for women and girls – and where the most attention is needed to advance true equality.
Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton will headline the special program which will also include U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet and former president of Liberia Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.
One illuminating aspect of the coronavirus pandemic has been the noticeably successful response to the crisis mounted by women leaders across the world. The elevation of more women to leadership positions is crucial to promote a global community that is thriving, healthy and prosperous. Understanding how to accelerate that progress as we face unprecedented upheaval and the opportunity for realignment is fundamental.
