The one-day conference brought together women leaders from the top companies in corporate America, as well as women from top undergraduate and graduate programs across the world.

Women empowerment is the underlying goal of the conference “by and for women”. Through this conference, each woman had a chance to learn about the United Nations Millennium Development Goals: Eradicate Extreme Poverty and Hunger, Reduce Child Mortality and Improve Maternal Health, and Achieve Universal Primary Education.

The conference showcased women’s increasing involvement in the Green Economy, and included examples of new entrepreneurial ventures and micro-financing programs.

The conference's aim was to accelerate the impact of the world’s leading rural and agricultural development and finance leaders by uniting them in a collaborative pursuit of learning, leverage and large scale change.
