WiSER Annual Forum

The WiSER annual Forum is the flagship event of the WiSER platform. Taking place annually at Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week, one of the world’s leading platforms for accelerating sustainable development, the WiSER Forum invites policymakers, industry leaders and other influential figures from around the world to discuss relevant topics related to sustainability in the context of gender equality.

The Forum aims to promote new thinking, viable solutions and lasting collaboration to empower present and future generations of female sustainability leaders. One of the key outcomes of the Forum is a whitepaper based on the outputs of the roundtables, which summarizes key findings and offers an insightful commentary about the topics discussed.
