"The most important thing, I think, is to have led people to have confidence in themselves, to understand that at last they can sit down and write about their development, write about their happiness and say what they want. And at the same time, to feel what the price is for happiness".

Talents Montants 2023 , This initiative is a commitment to promoting women leaders and bringing the vision of rising generations to the Women's Forum.

The Women's Forum and its partners, INSEAD, Lazard and Russell Reynolds Associates, share a common conviction: identifying and developing talent among women is essential for the future of global business and society. Each year, around 15 young women are selected to join the Rising Talents network, attend the Women's Forum Global Meeting and the Women's Forum Regional Meetings, and benefit from enhanced networking activities and support at these events and in the future. Their Rising Talents 2022 come from all over the world and from a variety of sectors, from health and biotechnology to sustainable development and business innovation.

Talent is selected on the basis of exceptional skills, leadership, open-mindedness, international outlook and bravery in their personal and professional lives.

Since its creation, the Rising Talents network has brought together more than 250 women from over 50 different countries, representing a diversity of sectors. These talents include ministers, CEOs and senior executives of major companies, artists and NGO representatives, all of whom are contributing to the economic empowerment of women in their field of work.
