World Leadership Conference in Pittsburgh

The International Women's Forum (IWF) is holding its annual World Leadership Conference in Pittsburgh. Leaders from more than 60 different countries are meeting to talk about sustainable cities and how to attain them. Attendees will pay careful attention to Masdar City in the United Arab Emirates, which is being built to be the world's first "zero-carbon, zero-waste, car-free city."

IWF President Esther Silver-Parker says the conferences are always focused on developing more women leaders, and on how women can become involved in worldly situations.

They have previously met in places like Seattle and Buenos Aires, Argentina. They plan to meet in Hong Kong in the spring.
