Ambassador Victoria Kennedy delivered one of the keynote addresses at yesterday’s Women Leadership Forum at the Vienna International Centre, emphasizing the important role modeling role of women leaders. The Women Leadership Forum celebrates its 10th anniversary and the goal of this year’s forum was to promote greater participation, inclusiveness, and visibility of women at all levels of the sustainability workforce.


Ambassador Kennedy:When women achieve high office or business success, they impact and empower future generations of women and girls to follow in their footsteps. If you can see her, you can be her.”
