About WEF – Slovenia 2020

Women Economic Forum – Slovenia, from 6th – 8th February, 2020, is a three day event on the theme “Power of the Pack; Women trustfully supporting Women”. We expect 200+ women, supportive men and young leaders to join us over the two days including 150+ speakers from 30+ countries.
Power of the Pack. Women trustfully supporting Women : Traditionally we, women have been taught to be distrustful of one another due to scarcity of top jobs. It’s clear that strategy doesn’t work. The truth is that supporting one another raises us up collectively and channels the power of collaboration which is truly how we’ll change the spiralling equation… and have a lot more fun along the way. We need to reverse the stereotype that women don’t support other women. Studies unequivocally show that women supporting other women are more successful in business and happier in private life. We invite all the Soul sisters to join us on WEF Slovenia 2020 in Ljubljana on February 6th,7th & 8th 2020, and bring studies of unity and support into reality. Let’s empower our Pack!

WEF – 5WCW Mission Million 2022

We have also announced MISSION MILLION in India for 2022, gathering women of the world in solidarity. Mission Million is aimed at connecting a million women entrepreneurs and supportive leaders worldwide as an empowering sisterhood and inspired community, toward opening up exponential opportunities for connections and collaborations in a spirit of parity, peace and prosperity for All. This would be a follow up on previous United Nations world conferences for women, held in Mexico in 1975, Copenhagen in 1980, Nairobi in 1985, and the 4WCW in Beijing in 1995 where 12000 women representative from across the world came together. 25 years hence, since the UN has not yet moved toward a 5th World Conference for Women – which would serve as a modern milestone for the journey and growth of women empowerment in our times, we have thus envisioned the 5WCW as WEF – 5WCW Mission Million 2022 with the goal of having a million women worldwide gather for a 5th World Conference of Women originating in India in 2022.
