Five hundred (500) women from 45 countries are gathering in Miami, Florida, U.S.A. this week on a mission: to make the world better.
The International Women’s Forum (IWF) runs Wednesday through Friday, and will include top women leaders from the fields of government, business, research, innovation and science.
