Forbes en Español, recognized as the first economic and business information platform aimed at 600 million Spanish-speakers in the world, will hold the Women's Summit on Tuesday, June 27 in Mexico City.
In its first edition, this event is presented as an important space to talk about gender inequality in the region, where, according to figures from the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (Cepal) published by Forbes, by 2030 there will be about 354.6 million women.
Women’s Summit 2023
Highlighting how this meeting will take place more than 10 years after Forbes Mexico published the first list “The 100 Most Powerful Women,” the organization has convened businesswomen, leaders of the public and private sectors, as well as representatives of international organizations and activists who are part of the most recent edition of the 'Powerful Women' lists of Forbes Chile, Forbes Colombia, Forbes Peru, and Forbes Central America and the Dominican Republic, as well as Forbes Mexico, Business Luxury Media (BLM) publications.
Forbes en Español highlighted:
The mission of the first Forbes en Español Women's Summit is to raise the discussion of the major issues that permeate the gender agenda inside and outside these Latin American countries.
The publication also highlights that, although the figures quoted reflect a continuation of numerical superiority dating back to 1970, they are not reflected in the economic, business and socio-cultural spheres, revealing a continued underrepresentation of women in these countries.
