Background and Expo Overview

  • Global Leadership

  • Women's Voice 

  • Healthy and Sustainable Communities 

  • Women in Sports 

We plan to introduce our participants to more than 20 organizations in an interactive, hands-on experience in both virtual and in-person formats, followed by a closing activity.
