UFS Women’s Forum Dialogue Circles

The aim of the enterprising circle is to create an inclusive, diverse, innovative cross-industry working group that convenes representatives from business, policymakers, experts, scientists, international organisations, NGOs, and academia to engage for a long-term positive impact on issues where women are disproportionately impacted in society.

The Enterprising Circle

The enterprising circle consists of four high-level collaborative working groups that cover key challenges and crucial issues.

#Rising4Talents initiative

Aims to distinguish highly talented young women who are on their way to becoming influential figures in our economies and societies. This initiative is a commitment to promoting women leaders and bringing the vision of rising generations to the UFS Women’s Forum.


Aims to promote initiatives and solutions to empower women to lead actions against climate change and accelerate the transition to a greener economy, while raising awareness about the ways in which gender and climate intersect.


Aims to improve women’s health and to explore unique and paramount ways to enhance their health status and their quality of life.


Aims to increase the representation, leadership, and impact of women with science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) skills in an inclusive manner at all stages of the pipeline – from school to boardroom – and to highlight the strong connection between STEM skills, access to jobs, and potential for positive societal impact.
