At the Reykjavík Global Forum – Women Leaders 2021 our Conversationists’ safety is our top priority.
With COVID-19, there are many challenges to bringing people together in person, but all of us are committed to taking decisive action to ensure that we can offer both in-person and digital opportunities for this year’s Forum and do so in a safe way.

There will be testing time-slots every fifteen minutes. Testing starts at 7:30 and ends at 15:30 and will take place in Harpa on Tuesday (9th) and Wednesday (10th). Please allow for 30 minutes for the test results to come back.
