The panel, entitled ‘The Global Conversation: “The Way to the Top”’, was held by the Global Thinkers Forum under its Athena 40 platform in partnership with Afiniti to celebrate International Women’s Day.

“As women become more and more empowered, politically and economically, it’s clear our position is changing around the globe,” Elizabeth Filippouli, founder of Global Thinkers Forum, said at this week’s event.
