Seven Revolutions: Global Trends and the Role of Women in 2035
Seven Revolutions is an ambitious effort to look at the pressing global
trends that will fundamentally change the way we work, think, and live – as individuals, as organizations, as nations, and as women in leadership positions. The Center for Strategic &
International Studies (CSIS), a Washington-based, bipartisan foreign policy think tank, has spent more than two decades analyzing these trends. Looking out to the year 2035, they have identified a
series of important drivers both globally and locally, as well as their projected effects on societies worldwide. These drivers are population; resource management; technological innovation;
information flows; economic integration; security; and governance. Michèle Ledgerwood will speak to us about merging challenges in all of these areas and their likely evolution over the next 25
years, as well as how they will be influenced by – and have an impact on – women across the globe.
