Global empowerment speaker Felicia R. Phillips received the prestigious “Iconic Women Creating a Better World for All” award on May 11 at the 2017 Women Economic Forum in New Delhi, India.

WEF seeks to empower women to expand their business opportunities and global influence through networking across borders. During this year’s event, more than 2,000 women leaders and delegates from more than 150 countries gathered in India for a six-day conference.

“It was truly a blessing to share my thoughts on pursuing your dreams and transforming the future, while loving and caring for yourself, with such an amazingly powerful group of women, dignitaries and governmental officials from around the world,” said Phillips, who is a marketing strategist and licensed minister.

“This esteemed WEF award of recognition for making a global impact was simply icing on the cake,” she added.

Phillips is a native of Philadelphia and currently resides in Delaware County with her husband and two children.

She joined a rich confluence of global leaders and achievers who traveled to India to speak across 520 sessions and workshops based on the conference theme, “Women: Creating, Innovating, Understanding and Driving the Future.”

In addition to serving as one of the forum’s international speakers, Phillips also served as a member of the WEF Advisory Executive Council, where she was responsible for helping to ensure that the forum included meaningful dialogue on topics that were relevant to all of the global attendees regardless of industry,culture or background.

“WEF is a supportive platform where women from all walks of life can come and empower their skills, attitudes and network,” said Harbeen Arora, founder and global chairperson of ALL Ladies League and WEF.

“This year, nearly 18 Women Economic Forum events are being organized across the world with the purpose of giving women worldwide greater voice and visibility. The response and affection we receive across these forums is overwhelming,” Arora added.
