    BMW Foundation Global Table

    Female Leadership for Resilient Societies

    Because of their limited mobility and socially assigned roles, women are more vulnerable than men in disasters. At the same time, women’s intimate, frontline knowledge of their local environment gives them the capacity to be leaders and transformational agents.

    The United Nations 2030 Agenda recognizes that without gender equality and the empowerment of women sustainable development will be unattainable. One central element of sustainable development is resilience, understood as the ability to recognize and address transformative forces such us climate change, globalization, urbanization, technological progress, and demographic patterns.

    So far, women’s leadership in building resilient and inclusive communities across the world has not yet been adequately highlighted. Therefore, the 13th BMW Foundation Global Table in Udaipur, India, wants to develop solutions on how to counter social inequalities and empower female leadership. Participants from around the globe will share their experiences, discuss success stories and challenges, and develop forward-looking strategies.

    Regional Network Activities

    Responsible Leaders Meeting in Paretz

    After extensively realigning our activities in the last few years, we now want to focus more strongly on the BMW Foundation Responsible Leaders’ regional network in Europe. We start in the German-speaking area and invite a small, select group of Responsible Leaders from Germany, Switzerland, and Austria to Paretz, Brandenburg. The goal of the meeting is to build and expand the Responsible Leaders Network.

    The BMW Foundation Herbert Quandt promotes responsible leadership and inspires leaders worldwide to work towards a peaceful, just, and sustainable future. Through our activities, we aim to advance the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations 2030 Agenda.
