Her global challenge: Developing the next generation of women leaders

"Both locally and globally, IWF promotes opportunities for women and advances leadership for economies, societies and individuals. My involvement is important to me because it has introduced me to women leaders from around the world representing many different cultures, races and backgrounds. These women are changing their communities and countries. I have made friends around the world, and it has truly made me into an international citizen. As IWF global president, I am assisting the various forums with best practices to reach and develop the next generation of women leaders and help them make a difference in their communities." - IWF Global President Teresa V-F Weintraub

The Power of Connection by Camille Mirshokrai

"In my role as Growth & Strategy lead for Growth Markets at Accenture, I have the privilege of meeting women around the world-women who are experienced leaders-and women who are developing leaders-most of whom are committed to seeing all women realize their full potential in society and business. And, as a board member of the International Women's Forum, I collaborate with like-minded women who have made it their vocation to live the IWF mission: to build better leadership around the world. Through all of my experiences-at Accenture-with the IWF-and beyond, I've witnessed the power of the multiplier effect. Most commonly, this term is applied to the world of economics to describe a chain reaction of activities that stimulate the economy. I extend the meaning of the multiplier effect to describe a series of activities and relationships-the undeniable power of connecting many intelligent, ambitious and committed women who collaborate toward a common goal." -Camille Mirshokrai
