Economic Design

Rethinking Economy & Growth

How can economy be designed on a sustainable basis? What comes after growth? What values and long-term visions does the world economy need after the global pandemic in the 21st century? And what role can and must women play in reshaping the world?

These and many other questions about the future will be discussed at SHERO.CONGRESS, the first world economic summit for women. Female leaders and interested, ambitious women who are passionate about rethinking business and growth are invited to attend.

The first SHERO.CONGRESS will take place on 22 May 2022 from 12-6pm (CEST // UTC +2). The main focus in 2022 is the topic “Trust – the new capital asset in the 21st century“. Trust is the “glue” that holds systems and societies together, but trust in organisations, companies, governments and societies is dwindling worldwide, in no small part due to the global pandemic that has dug deep chasms in societies. So what needs to be done to restore trust? What concepts and ideas are there for establishing trust as a sustainable value in economy, society, science and politics?

SHERO.CONGRESS opens the global discussion and seeks first ways to find answers.

Economy of Trust

How can trust be maintained or restored in companies and industries? What impact does hybrid working have on trust in teams? And what value does trust create for the entire economy?

TEchnology of Trust

AI, blockchain, big data, smart factories or deep learning – technology is everywhere. What ethical values should be established to make technological processes trustworthy?

Science of Trust

Science has been guiding the destiny of humanity – and yet it still has few answers when it comes to questions about life and purpose. What role can science play in the future?

Society of Trust

The global pandemic has divided societies worldwide and shaken trust in many areas. How can we overcome the habit of “social distancing” and how can humanity heal?

Politics of Trust

Democracies worldwide were severely tested. We now know that even reliable democratic processes reveal weaknesses in times of crisis. What might political systems of the future look like?
