It has been announced that Cartier will collaborate with Expo 2020 Dubai to present the Women’s Pavilion; a global platform dedicated to female change-makers, both past and present, from every culture and religion around the globe.

From forward-thinking political figures to trailblazing business leaders and boundary breaking creatives, the pavilion will recognise the impact of women in society, shining a light on the many achievements that have helped to shape communities and drive forward economies.

Visitors to the Women’s Pavilion at the international fair, will embark on an educational journey that highlights milestones for women’s rights, as well as the challenges that are still being encountered.

Embodying the Expo 2020 theme of ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’, the platform will share the female expertise and innovation that has helped to inspire and empower citizens to build a better future — revealing aspirational stories that will continue to raise awareness and make a positive difference.

“Gender equality is an essential pillar of all sustainable development – the foundation on which the health and prosperity of communities, and indeed humanity at large, is built,” said Her Excellency Reem Al Hashimy, UAE Minister of State for International Cooperation and Director General of Expo 2020 Dubai Bureau.

“The Women’s Pavilion highlights the crucial roles that women have long played as linchpins of their communities and drivers of economies, and underscores Expo 2020 Dubai’s firm commitment to empowering all women to drive their own development and create a better future for us all.”

UN Women chief Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka and human rights lawyer Amal Clooney — both campaigners for women’s rights, empowerment and gender equality — have welcomed the initiative and are lending their support to the pavilion.

“I applaud the UAE for dedicating a space for the millions of visitors to Expo 2020 Dubai to learn about the crucial roles that women play from communities to the world stage, while recognising the challenges they still face every day,” said Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka.

While President and CEO of Cartier International, Cyrille Vigneron, shared his perspective on the collaboration: “At Cartier, women have always held a pivotal role, as a driving force and an endless source of inspiration. The Women’s Pavilion is an exciting new chapter in the Maison’s long-standing commitment to support women change-makers.”

Starting in October 2020, Expo 2020 Dubai will present The World’s Greatest Show, where Cartier will celebrate women at the dedicated Women’s Pavilion
