Women As Agents For change:

Leading and Transforming In A Transitioning Business Climate

New technology is rapidly moving the needle of global workforces, pushing every industry to inevitable transformation—and at breakneck speed. This monumental change is marked by what can feel like an insurmountable mismatch of current skills and the constantly evolving need for newly required qualifications—together creating a tsunami force shift in the job market, especially for women. This year, eWc will dive deep into the effects of transformational digitalization, how we can reorganize and prepare to facilitate this transition and positively affect female workforces to effectively

SKILL, RE-SKILL & Up-SKILL.

The synergies and disruptive force of female leadership and services through social entrepreneurship, present opportunities and challenges in ways never seen or even imagined before. eWc will explore why this sector is poised to be an unparalleled force for good and growth—now and in the years to come. Join our exciting and impressive lineup of speakers and panelists, along with our network of extraordinary women in leadership positions, for an inspiring seminar and luncheon followed by a high-level networking session, to connect and learn about new trends and developments relevant to the 21st-century workforce and social entrepreneurship.

– Anna Felländer, digital economist, senior advisor to BCG and advisor to the Swedish Government

CULTIVATING A TRANSATLANTIC NETWORK OF FEMALE LEADERS

PANEL DISCUSSIONS

MENTOR AWARD

Lunch & Networking

Each Executive Women’s Conference is centered on a specific and timely topic relevant to female executives and professionals in the 21st century. Typically women in leadership positions at multinational corporations discuss and share ideas in panels, fireside chats and workshops. Previous topics include digitization, sustainability, female leadership and work-life balance.

Instituted in 2006, and presented annually at the Swedish-American Executive Women’s Conference, the Mentor Award honors a business leader who has actively encouraged and supported women in business to achieve sustainable gender balance in their industries.

As much as the conference revolves around learning from inspiring panel discussions, it is also a place for networking and connecting with other ambitious and talented women in leadership positions. Make sure to bring your business cards!
