The Foundation was established in 2007 with the aim of facilitating the development of Russia’s economic potential, promoting its national interests, and strengthening the country’s image. One of the roles of the Foundation is to comprehensively evaluate, analyse, and cover issues on the Russian and global economic agendas. It also offers administrative services, provides promotional support for business projects and attracting investment, helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives.

Each year, the Foundation’s events draw participants from 208 countries and territories, with more than 15,000 media representatives working on-site at Roscongress’ various venues. The Foundation benefits from analytical and professional expertise provided by 5,000 people working in Russia and abroad.

The Foundation works alongside various UN departments and other international organizations, and is building multi-format cooperation with 173 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 78 countries worldwide, and 188 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

Women’s Agenda for a Healthy Society: New Opportunities in Remote Areas
5 September 2022
17:15—18:45

Women are actively involved in the social agenda: at work, in social entrepreneurship, and social and political life, as they implement and develop their own public projects. However, women often face restrictions, both due to existing gender stereotypes and also in terms of opportunities and support for their activities from the government and public institutions. Women living in remote areas are particularly in need of support, as a lack geographical unity, the necessary infrastructure, and development institutions, as well as an information and educational vacuum and the inability to improve their managerial skills prevent them from fully developing their initiatives and promoting the agenda of a healthy lifestyle. New formats of assistance and an effective system of political measures are required that would enable women (and especially mothers) to strengthen the social and health protection agenda, unite people, and actively participate in the social policy of a macro-region and the country as a whole. What are the main priorities of Russia’s social policy? What role do women play in achieving key social policy priorities? What new development opportunities and support measures do socially active women need? What technologies could contribute to the unification of proactive women living in remote areas? How can we promote the new trend of women combining different social roles in society? What corporate and regional programmes to support working socially active women have proven their effectiveness and could be further scaled up?
