​​The Women Economic Forum is a global conference platform that brings together women entrepreneurs, professionals, thought leaders, and change-makers from various fields to promote economic empowerment, leadership, and collaboration among women. This event was created by the ALL Ladies League (ALL) to foster conversations, connections, and collaborations among women committed to contributing in ALL spheres of life through business, innovation, leadership, vision, and voice. 

In July, hundreds of women gathered at this year’s Women Economic Forum to discuss issues related to women’s economic empowerment and leadership within the Colombian context. The event brought together more than 75 local and international women leaders to share their experiences, expertise, and insights. Building Markets’ Program Director for Latin America, Carolina Duran, gave a keynote address. During her speech, she discussed the challenges faced by small businesses, particularly in the Latin American economy, highlighted their requirements for sustained growth, and explained how Building Markets supports them.
