Attention: Communications Team
Now on its 6th year, the Annual Power of Collaboration Global Summit at the United Nationsbrings together the world’s most diverse, inclusive and innovative ideas, inspiring global leaders to collectively pursue endeavors that embody the best of our human values.
This year’s theme is “Women, Investment and Innovation: Catalysts for a Global Leadership Revolution”.
Presented alongside the celebration of International Women’s Day and the 63rd Session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) at the United Nations, POC2019 will also focus on the timely importance of Consciousness Shift as a major driving force in putting forward and center the role of women as catalysts for a much – needed global leadership revolution.
