Women’s Forum Global Meeting

Posted on September 17

I’ll be speaking at the Women’s Forum Global Meeting in Paris, 5-6 October 2017. I’m taking part in a session about E-health (Health delivery to underserved groups) with a roster of excellent speakers, and we’ll be tackling issues around inequality that I explored to some extent in The Life Project. The meeting as a whole is subtitled ‘Daring to Lead in a Disrupted World’ and looks to be a really thought-provoking conference.
