In this new era of convening for the Reykjavík Global Forum, the Ministry for Foreign Affairs is opening the doors of Icelandic embassies around the world and inviting women leaders to join ambassadors in a conversation on how leaders can build a more equitable and sustainable future in alignment with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. 

A key commitment of the Reykjavík Global Forum has always been to harness the collective power of women leaders and create practical tools accessible to all leaders striving to improve society. To continue to deliver on this promise, we will be gathering the ideas that are shared during the Reykjavík Conversations 2021 and using them to inform one of the premier outputs of the Reykjavík Global Forum: The Reykjavík Manual. The Manual is a practical guide that draws together the insights, best practices, and solutions offered by women leaders worldwide. These Conversations will be small roundtable gatherings, held under Chatham House Rules, and each will last approximately 90 minutes. 

Reykjavík Conversations 2021 will be hosted by ambassadors in the following locations:

  • Vienna. November 19 / 10:00 am
  • Helsinki. November 19 / 8:30 am
  • Berlin. November 23 / 2:00 pm
  • London. November 24 / 10:30 am
  • Beijing. November 25 / 4:00 pm
  • Stockholm. November 29 / 2:30 pm
  • Washington, DC. November 30 / 9:00 am
  • Lilongwe. December 1 / 2:00 pm
  • New York. December 2 / 1:30 pm
  • Oslo. December 7 / 11:30 am
  • Ottawa. December 7 / 10:00 am
  • Tokyo. December 9 / 9:30 am


Please note that all times are local. Additional locations may be confirmed at a later date.

If you are interested in taking part in a Reykjavík Conversation and one of the above locations is accessible to you, please complete this registration form. You can also contact us any time at mail@womenleaders.global, should you have any questions. 

The Forum 2021 is a multi-location convening of around 500 people gathering in Iceland, in person Global Forum Satellites in other parts of the world, complemented by a digital gathering. The Reykjavík Global Forum provides a much needed sense of community each year and there is a strong demand from Conversationists of the past years that this sense of community needs to be replicated globally at this important time.

This year, simultaneous Global Forum Satellites – Women Leaders across the globe provide for leaders not traveling to Reykjavík the opportunity to be part of the Conversations and the possibility to use their Power, Together for Progress – which is the motto of the Reykjavík Global Forum 2021.
