- Amplifying the voices of women to shape the future.

- Promoting sustainable behaviors for sustainable growth.

- Forging positive collaboration.

The sessions will address issues such as economy, innovation, immigration, climate change, gender violence, sustainable growth, the future of work and the construction of inclusive cities.

The forum will also be attended by Claudia Sheinbaum, Chief of Government of CDMX; Arancha González, executive director of the International Trade Center; Gabriella Fitzgerald, executive vice president and general manager of American Express for the US and Global Commercial Customers; Anne Grillo, ambassador of France in Mexico; Gina Diez Barroso, founder of Dalia Empower; Dayle Haddon, founder of Women1one, and Olga Sánchez Cordero, Secretary of the Interior of Mexico, among others, who will debate on how to unleash the potential of American diversity and shape a future based on sustainable and inclusive growth.

Since 2005, Women's Forum for the Economy & Society has become the main platform to highlight the voice of women around the world's main social and economic problems.

Through the experience of leaders, both men and women, from different generations, geographies, and industries, the forums present diverse and audacious debates that act as a council to address the most relevant ideas of the present and catapult solutions for the future.
