The Power Shift Forum for Women in the World Economy is produced under the auspices of DoubleXEconomy LLC, but is still curated and produced by team members who brought Power Shift to the University of Oxford in 2013, 2014, and 2015, as well as to Georgetown University in 2016. The event is always curated by Professor Linda Scott, founder of DoubleXEconomy LLC, now retired from Oxford. The event still draws on the extensive network built by previous Power Shift events and by DoubleXEconomy itself.
Power Shift has built a cross-Atlantic community that supports each other in their ongoing work to empower women economically, around the world, across sectors, and at all income levels. The community is composed of representatives from various public and private institutions, including NGOs, multinational corporations, foundations, and governments. The Forum itself is practically-oriented and expert-focused. The gathering is intentionally organized to support the building and continuation of relationships among those who are actively working to empower women economically. It is normally conducted under the Chatham House rule in order to facilitate candid sharing among the players. The event is invitation-only, but individuals and organizations can submit requests for inclusion. The main criterion is a demonstrated commitment to women’s empowerment.
