The Women in Parliaments Global Forum (WIP) will host the “APEC Women Leaders Breakfast” on 18 November, in Manila. This event will be organised on the occasion of the APEC CEO Summit 2015, with the support of Merck.
Women leaders across the region have pledged for advancing gender equality and greater economic empowerment for women in the Asia-Pacific. Public-private cooperation is key to achieving these objectives as resilient governments and innovative business are main ingredients for growth. How can APEC Women Leaders from government and business collectively shape policies for inclusive and sustainable growth?
The APEC Women Leaders Breakfast aims to strengthen the network between high-level women leaders across the Asia Pacific. It serves as an informal platform for networking and establishing meaningful dialogue on issues of relevance to APEC. The President of Chile, Michelle Bachelet, will be the Guest of Honour of this edition.
Last year’s APEC Women Leaders Lunch in Beijing, gathered 15 high level female leaders from both politics and business. The President of Chile, Michelle Bachelet, took part in the lunch as Guest of Honour. You can access the photos of the event via this link.
