ABOUT WEP’s 2021 FORUM

Women’s Education Project’s annual Forum gathers international thought leaders working towards gender equality. Past topics have included NGO collaboration, gender lens investing, technology and change, and celebrating first generation college women. The Red Bangle Award is presented during the event. At WEP’s 8th Annual Forum, this year online, young women attending WEP’s Leadership Academy in India, will initiate the conversation of Leadership in a Time of COVID by sharing their own stories of leading change within their communities during the pandemic. Red Bangle Award recipients, Anita Bhatia of UNWomen and Marissa Wesely of Win-Win Strategies will discuss their work, the pandemic’s disproportionate effects on women and girls, and the importance of supporting leadership and decision making power of women at the grassroots level to truly resolve social and economic problems
