Global Thinkers Forum & Athena40

Global Thinkers Forum (GTF) is a non-profit organisation with a core mission to promote values-based thinking and accountability in leadership. Over the years we have been building our diverse network of thought leaders to share their vision for the future, create meaningful conversations and to achieve positive change through our mentoring programmes that support youth and women around the world. 

The Forum is London-based and was incubated at Oxford University’s Said Business School in 2011. It was launched in 2012 under the patronage of Her Majesty Queen Rania al Abdullah in Amman, Jordan. 

Global Thinkers Forum has a network of influencers and partners that reach more than 70 countries around the world and engages leaders across business, philanthropy, academia, science, civil society, NGOs and government. GTF has partnered with some of the world’s leading brands, organisations and foundations and has an advisory board consisting of social impact focused leaders from over 20 countries.

 

What is the Athena40 Initiative?

Athena40 was officially launched at UNESCO on International Women’s Day in March 2018. Every two years it discovers and acknowledges the work of some of the most innovative female thought leaders. The inaugural list was announced in 2020.

The Athena40 initiatives focus on strengthening the role of women worldwide and nurturing female leadership. Together with our partners we create opportunities for women to be recognised, access new networks, connect to knowledge and build new partnerships. Athena40 recognises women who embrace entrepreneurial thinking regardless of their professional realm, expertise or aspirations.
