Need another reason to attend Business Day at the Nobel Peace Prize Forum (March 8-10)? We’re thrilled to announce that Nina Easton has accepted our invitation to speak on Friday, March 8 as part of the Business Day program, which also features a keynote address by Peace Prize Winner, economist, and “Father of Microcredit” Muhammad Yunus. Easton is FORTUNE magazine’s Washington columnist and senior editor, covering politics and economics in the nation’s capital. She also serves as co-chair of the Most Powerful Women Summit and was a 2012 fellow at Harvard’s Kennedy School. Her presentation at the Nobel Peace Prize forum, entitled “Women: Indispensible Pillars of Economic and Global Stability,” will address a number of important questions, including: What is the unfolding role of women in the realm of economic growth and world stability? Which countries and which companies have been the most successful in bringing women into the economic forefront? What do they gain and what do they lose? Is our global future fundamentally different because of this?
