G100 EU Meetings (Netherlands), 6-8 Nov 2021

The first part of the G100-EU meetings took place in the Netherlands – starting in Rotterdam, a hub of community and creativity, and concluding in The Hague, the city of Peace & Justice.

Across our meetings, we saw a strong focus of policy makers on sustainable development, innovation and inclusion.

The issues of racism and discrimination were discussed and also how these could be addressed by empathetic leadership across genders and generations. It was heartening to see the commitment toward social justice as a new independent Commission has been set up for the same.

Meetings with women leaders especially gave us the insight that domestic abuse and patriarchal mindsets with stereotypes on gender roles were as much a problem in the West as they were in other parts of the world, even when women are at the top of their careers
