Events: women & girls leading change

W4, in partnership with ESCP Europe, co-hosted a breakfast for the ESCP Europe Executive MBA Women’s Network. The event is part of W4’s ongoing partnership with ESCP Europe’s EMBA Global Women’s Network to promote gender diversity in business and women’s leadership.

W4 Founder & President Lindsey Nefesh-Clarke was honored to participate in the distinguished meeting, building on the United Nations Secretary General’s High-Level Panel on Women’s Economic Empowerment. The meeting centered on devising concrete actions for women’s economic empowerment, particularly how best to create an enabling environment for women entrepreneurs through strategically tailored initiatives and partnerships between business, government, and civil society. The event saw the launch of WEI (the Women’s Economic Imperative) a new initiative to take forward the work of the United Nations Secretary General’s High-Level Panel on Women’s Economic Empowerment. W4 is proud to have entered into a partnership with WEI. 

The W4 team was thrilled to take part in the inspiring forum hosted by the Thomson Reuters Foundation. Reinforcing the paramount importance promoting women’s empowerment and gender equality, W4 sponsored the event’s Scholarship Program, enabling the participation of over 50 women working at the grassroots level from across the world to promote women’s empowerment. W4 Founder Lindsey Nefesh-Clarke spoke at a session about harnessing digital technologies and crowdfunding to fund grassroots gender equality projects.

W4 Founder & Managing Director Lindsey Nefesh-Clarke had the honor of being Master of Ceremony for the 2017 UNESCO International Literacy Prizes. The theme of the awards this year was “Literacy in a digital world”. The awards ceremony took place on the occasion of International Literacy Day, September 8, at UNESCO headquarters in Paris, in the presence of UNESCO Director General Ms Irina Bokova.

W4 was thrilled to host its first webinar on funding for grassroots organizations via crowdfunding. Among the 14 participants in the webinar were organizations within W4 and Girls Not Brides’ portfolio of projects in Sub-Saharan Africa.

In 2016, Women’s Forum chose for its theme “Is the sharing economy a sharing world?”. During the event, Lindsey Nefesh-Clarke was invited as a moderator for a round table on the question: “How can we, as influencers, promote women’s entrepreneurship in emerging sectors?”
