The heart of IWF – idea exchange, inspiration and advancing better leadership – was vibrantly represented during this exciting World Leadership Conference designed to explore innovations in science, medicine, food supply, energy, finance, education, and other game changing dynamics. A proud and grateful organization salutes our hosts – the Massachusetts Women’s Forum! An audience of over 800 world leaders participated in the two and half day leaders’ exchange. Among the featured speakers were global thought leaders, engineers, entrepreneurs and corporate innovators, health care leaders and researchers, authors and social pioneers.

Mapping out multiple worlds fractured by race, class and history with stories both complex and demanding of our reflection, the International Women’s Forum looked at the culture and heritage, strength and struggle of a country which inspires. In a global dialogue that provides lessons, both told and untold, to a world locked in a redemptive struggle for the ideas, identity, opportunity and inheritance that will define the future, world leaders gathered in Johannesburg, May 20-22 for the 2015 IWF World Cornerstone Conference – Legacy & Inheritance: Journey to the Future.
Crossing boundaries and disrupting expectations, IWF witnessed the unspoken in society and considered not only the challenges, the hope and opportunities that South Africa’s story provides, but the interlinked nature of its trajectory across a region and a world that searches for answers to some of the most intractable social, economic, political and geo-strategic issues of our time.
