Over the years, women around the world have played an increasingly greater role in the environmental conversation. Recognizing these efforts and hoping to inspire many more, the second and virtual edition of this year’s WILL Summit will see Vogue Arabia bring together prominent female voices championing environmental action in today’s society.
Tune in on May 19 at 2pm GST to see Susanne Mikhail Eldhagen, UN Women Regional Director for the Arab states, and Dina Storey, Head of Sustainability Operations at Expo 2020 Dubai; discuss the imperative role of women in the future of sustainability. The conversation will be moderated by Beatrice Cornacchia, Senior Vice President, Marketing & Communications, EEMEA, at Mastercard.
Speakers will dive into topics related to climate change and discuss how female progression in Arab countries are driving forward women in STEM and the world’s sustainability efforts. Greenwashing and transparency in sustainable decisions by companies will be on the agenda, alongside the importance of organizations taking action to reduce their carbon footprint. Since sustainability played a major role at Expo 2020 Dubai, the conversation will also highlight what global corporations can learn from the record-breaking world fair.
Mastercard is passionately committed to embedding sustainability and has recently accelerated its own net zero roadmap to 2040. Recently, the technology company has linked employee compensation to the achievement of environmental, social and corporate-governance (ESG) goals, including carbon neutrality, financial inclusion and gender pay parity.
If environmental conservation has long intrigued you and doing your bit to help save the planet is always on your checklist, this panel is not one to miss. There isn’t a better time to hear from the experts themselves on how women can take care of the environment and participate in the sustainability movement.
