World Economic Forum in Davos: Free to Be (LGBTI)

Office of the President

This week, President Ana Mari Cauce joins Kenyan filmmaker Wanuri Kahiu; Prime Minister and Minister for Communications, Media and Digitization of Luxembourg Xavier Bettel; founder of GenderProud Geena Rocero and President of the Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth Shamina Singh in a panel, “Free to Be (LGBTI)“, at the World Economic Forum in Davos. The panel’s focus on creating safe and inclusive environments for LGBTQ+ youth draws on the panelists’ diverse experiences in a discussion of how schools and families can work to combat issues of mental illness and suicide among LGBTQ+ youth. President Cauce was invited to take part in order to share her perspective as a trained clinical psychologist whose research is focused on risk and resilience among adolescents with a special emphasis on at-risk youth.
