The annual International Policy Forum is the Chatham House Gender and Growth Initiative’s flagship event. The 2017 Forum assessed progress made towards gender-equality, monitor implementation of commitments and develop recommendations as well as measurable and actionable goals for the G20. The gap seems to be widening as the fusion of technology with all aspects of our lives grows stronger resulting in a disruption of systems and transformation of business, governance and society.
