Women2020 Series 2013-2014

cropped-women2020.jpgFrom 8 March 2013 to 6 March 2014, the Women2020 partnership, lead by the Digital Leadership Institute (formerly Zen Digital Europe), carried out a series of high-level gatherings between European business and policy leaders addressing topics related to women’s contribution to achieving the Europe 2020 vision. The findings of each gathering were captured in individual event reports, and the series resulted in the 6 March 2014 publication of a summary report, Women2020: Time to Act, with a cover letter by European Commission President José Manuel Barroso.

The following is the Women2020 Series 2013-2014 Calendar, including reports generated for each gathering, participants, photos, partners and sponsors:
