The Innosocium Foundation – Roscongress Foundation Social Platform to Serve as Partner for Women’s Health Welfare of Nation Forum
The Innosocium Foundation – the social platform of the Roscongress Foundation will help to develop the agenda for the Women’s Health – Welfare of the Nation Forum scheduled for March 2020. The Forum has come to be at the initiative of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation and the Federation Council and was first inspired by the Second Eurasian Women’s Forum held in St. Petersburg in 2018.
“Issues surrounding the country’s socio-economic development are a priority for state policy. The development of human capital and the elimination of gender inequality, existing gender barriers, and limitations in relation to opportunities are all global challenges facing modern society.
A nation cannot be strong and stable unless it increases the economic activity of women in all sectors of the economy and involves them in management and decision-making processes. In this regard, it is extremely important to create the conditions necessary for self-realization and to maintain gender balance at all levels, including business. The result would be the establishment of a stable and equal society and sustainable economic growth as a whole. Support for such events is of particular relevance and forms the basis for positive changes in the future”, Advisor to the President of the Russian Federation Anton Kobyakov said.
“In the modern world, women play a vital role in the creation of a healthy society. The health of a family and children, and correspondingly of the whole nation, hinges on them. Moreover, women make a significant contribution to solving the large-scale social and economic problems facing our country. I am certain that this Forum organized with the support of the Federation Council will serve to provide further impetus to the development of the women’s agenda. Its results will be of great importance in improving the effectiveness of the implementation of the national Healthcare project”, Deputy Chairperson of the Federation Council of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation Galina Karelova said.
Women’s leadership is a vital part of the Innosocium Foundation’s activity. In 2019, the Foundation took part in a number of leading events dedicated to the development of the women’s agenda that included: The World Assembly for Women, organized jointly with the W20, the Compatriots and Continuity of Generations conference, and the 2019 Women’s Forum for the Economy & Society in Paris, included in the top 5 most influential world summits; furthermore, a key event of the Russian delegation’s visit was the Eurasian Women’s Forum Visiting Reception at the Trade Representation of Russia in Paris, dedicated to women’s cooperation and the development of creative industries. In October, the Innosocium Foundation – the social platform of the Roscongress Foundation took part in the preparation of the business programme of the Russia–Africa Summit and Economic Forum and organized a session on ‘Women in Russian–African Relations: Gender Balance in Politics, the Economy, and the Social Sector’.
“We expect the Forum to become a platform for preparing proposals related to the promotion of a healthy lifestyle for women in modern society and issues of longevity and beauty. We must raise awareness of current trends in healthcare and the beauty industry, consolidate the efforts of the state, the business community, and the public to resolve urgent problems in the industry and promote the development of the beauty and health industry in our country and integrate it into the international system”, Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation Gulnaz Kadyrova said.
The Forum’s business programme will focus on six key topics that include: women’s health, the national Healthcare project, current trends in cosmetology and pharmaceuticals, world fashion trends and the role of the media in shaping trends, and the psychological aspects of bringing a woman’s life into harmony. The highlight of the Forum looks to be the plenary session with the participation of Speaker of the Council of the Federation of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation Valentina Matviyenko and open dialogues with opinion leaders and key ministers. Furthermore, the newest products and the technologies in health and beauty will be presented at a large-scale exhibition.
“Given the successful interaction with the Innosocium Foundation in terms of establishing international cooperation, promoting Russian manufacturers, furthering the women’s agenda, as well as its unique tools, we consider the partnership between the Innosocium Foundation and the Forum to be important,” Kadyrova said.
“We are grateful that our work is valued and for the opportunity to carry out another important and interesting project. The role women play in modern society is difficult to overestimate, and Russia is capable of keeping up with this global trend and even leading it. Work on the Forum will complement the infrastructure of socially significant events that we are building. By combining them into a common agenda, we will create the conditions necessary for coordinating the efforts of all interested parties”, Deputy CEO of the Roscongress Foundation and Director of the Innosocium Foundation Elena Marinina said.
