8:00–10:00 FORTUNE MPW NETWORKING BREAKFAST: WOMEN, POWER AND THE EMERGING WORLD

CROUCHING TIGERS
Studies show Women in BRIC and UAE countries are gaining more education than their male counterparts—and they are more ambitions than their female peers in mature economies. But they often face social and cultural systems that complicate their ambitions. The challenges are vast, but finding ways to accommodate and encourage these women is key—they are the stars of tomorrow, and they will gravitate to the most progressive and creative employers.
