Global Educational Forum: Women in Leadership, Sport and Development in Global Context

This 13th edition of the Global Educational Forum delves into women's progress highlighting the first milestones reached in the first 20 years of the 21st century. Invited scholars will address persistent challenges that women face in their pursuit of equality to propose opportunities for inclusive communities not only for women and girls in their places of residence—whether local or global environments—but also for others seeking redemption due to unwelcome life experiences in work and society.

The purpose of the Global Educational Forum is to honor and celebrate women's accomplishments and milestones while faced with persistent challenges in leadership, sport and development in a global context.

The Forum will showcase the phenomenal ways women have actively contributed to social discourse that invoked substantial changes, specifically in underprivileged and marginalized communities, international organizations, and social institutions that are committed to fight for humanity worldwide.
