The World Economic Forum’s (WEF) annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland convenes leaders from government, business, and civil society to address the state of the world and discuss priorities for the year ahead. Critical discussions and commitments that take place in Davos this week provide a platform to engage in constructive, forward-looking dialogues and help find solutions through public-private cooperation. GLAAD first attended the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting in Davos in 2018. Since then, GLAAD has worked with WEF to bring LGBTQ people and issues into focus, widening the scope of representation. Teams across every level at GLAAD, from the GLAAD Media Institute to GLAAD’s Communities of Color department and executive leadership, have worked tirelessly to advocate for LGBTQ voices and issues to be part of the global issues addressed in Davos.
