It is a global initiative that originates from the ALL Ladies League in India and aims to create a network of support and visibility for businesswomen, leaders, and entrepreneurs. It provides an opportunity for women to share their success stories, learn from other inspiring leaders, and establish new connections and business collaborations. The official organizer of WEF LATAM Colombia is the Violeta Women Foundation, part of the Violeta Women business group.
These organizations work towards reducing gender gaps through innovative projects in areas such as education, business, communication, and international events, impacting over 8,000 people in Colombia and Latin America. They were also the organizers of the 3rd edition of WEF Colombia.
For the fourth edition of the Women Economic Forum – WEF LATAM Colombia 2023, themed "Leaders of Transformation," it will take place for the first time in the Colombian capital on July 27th and 28th at the facilities of the Bogota Chamber of Commerce, Salitre headquarters.
"It is a space where experts from different fields will discuss topics relevant to women's economic empowerment, including gender equality in the workplace, access to international markets, entrepreneurship, bridging the digital divide, and building networks and strategic alliances. It will be a forum that brings together innovative and disruptive actions where Global Leaders of Transformation will converge," says Karen Brugés, President of the Women Economic Forum WEF Latam Colombia and CEO of the Violeta Women Foundation.
According to the National Public Policy for Gender Equity for Women in Colombia, cited by UN Women in their article "The Situation of Women in Colombia," female representation in top executive positions does not exceed 20%, while it reaches 40% in management positions, aiming for relative parity in mid-level professional positions and dominating with 60% in support and base positions.
This will be one of the topics addressed during the WEF Latam-Colombia conferences. The event emphasizes sustainability by implementing the 3 Rs: reduce, reuse, and recycle, as well as measuring carbon footprint, launching the Latin American Sustainable Fashion Week (LASFW), and presenting the WEF Awards.
