EF WOMEN’S NETWORK CONFERENCE & EUROPEAN REGIONAL CONFERENCE
Sloane Club, Central London, United Kingdom
October 25 – 27, 2018
Join the EF Global Network in London from October 25 - 27, 2018 for three days of action-oriented collaboration, learning and networking to advance two issues critically important to our world: the advancement of women leaders and the integration of immigrants and refugees throughout Europe.
The Women's Leadership Conference on October 25 - 26 will feature inspirational speakers and practical sessions addressing issues related to the advancement of women in the workforce and society in general. Fellows will have the opportunity to meaningfully connect and collaborate with one another.
A note about participation in the Women’s Leadership Conference:
Due to limited space availability, we are giving priority to women attendees for the Friday session. As space becomes available, we will open up registration for other participants.
Following the meetings on women’s leadership, the European Hub of chapters representing the European Union, Belgium, France, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Spain, Turkey, and the U.K. will host a day-long symposium (Saturday, October 27) focused on immigrants, refugees and their integration throughout Europe. Humanitarian challenges brought on by civil wars, extreme violence, unstable political regimes and government structures, global poverty, climate change and other such difficult factors have forced migration and caused welcoming countries to strategize about ways to adapt.
Eisenhower Fellows will gather to hear from experts in various sectors to learn effective strategies to support the integration of immigrants and refugees into communities, cities and countries for the long-term stability and growth of the European region. Fellows will formulate their own responses so that their country chapters and regional networks are prepared with real-world solutions and projects to address the growing challenges in Europe.
Fellows from all parts of the world are welcome to attend and participate in the symposium, but the focus of the program will be on the European region. The day will close with a dinner in London to continue the conversation from the meetings, network and celebrate the commitment of Eisenhower Fellows to the EF global network.
