G100 comprises a league of luminaries including Nobel laureates, heads of states, ministers, businesswomen, philanthropists, investors, entrepreneurs, corporate and community leaders – a powerful group of achievers from all walks of life who wish to give back. The G100 World Peace wing is led by Global Chair H.E. Ouided Bouchamaoui, the Nobel Peace Prize 2015 winning co-founder of the Tunisian National Dialogue Quartet.
Founder & President of G100, Dr. Harbeen Arora, stated, “With our collective will, power, knowledge, and networks, we can offer our recommendations and urge upon governments and institutions to deliver on SDG 5 of Gender Equality. And if we can call for the urgent delivery of SDG5, then through the robust participation of women, we can together deliver on all of the SDGs by 2030. We welcome Sahana Ahmed to the epic G100 project – together we can make Gender Equality a reality in this decade.”
