100 newly recognized Young Global Leaders train their brains (and others’) by tackling complex challenges with innovative approaches

Meet the 2017 Class of Young Glob­al Lead­ers (World Eco­nom­ic Forum release):

They devel­op gene-edit­ing tech­nol­o­gy, rebuild wartorn nations and much more…Each year the World Eco­nom­ic Forum under­takes an ambi­tious endeav­our – to scour the world to select 100 young lead­ers, under the age of 40, who are tack­ling the world’s most com­plex chal­lenges with inno­v­a­tive approaches…Selected into a five-year pro­gramme, this year’s class of 100 Young Glob­al Lead­ers is split even­ly between busi­ness and not-for-prof­it sec­tors – build­ing a glob­al com­mu­ni­ty of peers who can cap­i­tal­ize on diverse tal­ents, expe­ri­ences and net­works to bridge divides that exist in soci­ety and achieve more togeth­er than they could separately…Not only are women in the major­i­ty in this year’s class, but half the intake come from emerg­ing economies, reflect­ing a trend towards greater diver­si­ty in glob­al leadership.”
