The TIAW Global Forum
is a yearly opportunity to bring together influential women from around the
world to meet, exchange ideas and discuss important issues. The 2014
Global Forum was an extraordinary session with a wide range of substantive
discussions taking place. One of the goals of the Forum is to inspire
action beyond the gathering to fully leverage the collective knowledge, insight
and recommendations on how to mobilize change..
With a goal to share outcomes of these important discussions at the 2014 Global
Forum in Washington DC in March, a group of TIAW members with deep experience
in international development drafted recommendations to be forwarded to the UN
under the aegis of Amanda Ellis, New Zealand's
Ambassador, Head of Mission and Permanent Representative for United Nations and
Honorary Patron of the 2013 TIAW World of Difference Awards.
