Founded in 2013 by Delphine Remy-Boutang, the JFD has become in 10 years a key growth accelerator that mobilizes public, private and media actors in Europe and Africa. It is within a powerful pan-European and pan-African network that JFD connects and honors women, encouraging them to dare, innovate and undertake.
Since its first edition, JFD has welcomed more than 500,000 people inspired by its 700 speakers, trained 6,000 talents and reached 15 million people around the world through its major annual events. Now more than just an event, JFD launches initiatives and takes concrete action to reduce gender inequality and reveal and support a new generation of leaders ready to shape our future. Among them, les Margaret & Margaret Junior Awards, the Margaret Foundation, the JFD Club, the White Shirts Movement and the JFD Manifesto for an Inclusive Digital World.
