JW Marriott Marquis

Miami, FL 33131


Miami is at the vanguard of change. The city sets trends in art, culture, media and entertainment. It is a financial center, a critical path for trade, and a thriving center for technology. It is the American gateway to Latin America both economically and culturally and is a truly global city, with a rich diversity defined by its bold creativity.

With that in mind, it is easy to see why Miami is the perfect place to examine global issues including the future of political warfare, blockchain technology, trade in flux, sea-level rise, and women who persist to make change happen. We are excited to continue our special Ideas Remaking the World series in which three IWF members will be featured on stage sharing their ideas that are disrupting, improving and reimagining our future, and our IWF in Action Town Hall, which will explore the Opioid Crisis.

World Leadership Conferences
, conducted annually by the International Women’s Forum, draw women from more than 50 countries who are the world’s leading architects, advocates, catalysts, and pioneers of change – the women who are re-drawing the map for how we’ll live, work, produce, and maintain healthy communities in the coming years. As our global economies restructure and reshape business, politics, environments, access and opportunity, IWF’s cutting–edge conferences harness those must-have conversations in order to educate, inform and inspire our women leaders and our partners to be out ahead of the change that is needed.
