A Message to Our Community

Dear IWF Sisters,

A core element of IWF’s mission and purpose is to champion equality worldwide. As such, the murder of George Floyd and the images of anguished protests and violence over the past week have been disheartening and distressing for all of us. As leaders, we know it is our responsibility to speak out and act – it is the only way change can happen.

COVID-19: The Race to Respond

COVID-19 has brought unmeasured consequences around the world, affecting everyone from personal loss and isolation to societies in lockdown and economic destruction. With treatments and vaccines to prevent the disease being pursued at warp speed, how and when can we reclaim our lives? Will a vaccine or treatment be available soon? And how can we motivate and lead while we are waiting for the world to go back to normal?

On Thursday, May 28, we had a candid conversation with Women’s Forum of New York member Susan Silbermann of Pfizer, a global pharma leader who has stepped up in the fight against this disease. As the current President of Emerging Markets and leader of Pfizer’s Global COVID-19 Task Force, Susan is uniquely qualified to give us an inside and global perspective.
