"Opportunities in Crisis 2: Defining New Avenues of Growth"
This conference, hosted by the Bertelsmann Foundation in cooperation with the Financial Times, again brings together high-level government officials, corporate executives, and leading thinkers from the United States, Europe and beyond. The event will put a special focus on stimulating our economies, the role of education, financial-sector reform, and global governance as ways to promote economic growth in the wake of the financial crisis. A special closing panel co-hosted by the Council of Women World Leaders on April 22, 2010, 4:00pm-5:00pm, will provide an opportunity for some of the world's most influential women to give their unique perspectives on the financial crisis.
The Bertelsmann Foundation is the only 501(c)(3)non-partisan, pan-European think tank in Washington, DC. As a private, operational foundation, the organization funds its own programs, which focus on trans-Atlantic economic and financial issues, foreign and security policy, education, healthcare and demographics.
The Council of Women World Leaders, a policy program of the Aspen Institute, is a network of current and former women presidents and prime ministers. The Council's mission is to mobilize the highest-level women leaders globally for collective action on issues of critical importance to women.
