At the annual Meet in Reykjavík Ambassador Day event, Hanna Birna Kristjánsdóttir, Chair of the Executive Board of Women Political Leaders, Global Forum, was honoured for her role in securing the arrival of the Women Political Leaders Global Forum (WPL) which took place in Harpa Concert Hall & Conference Centre in Reykjavík on 28–30 November 2017.

After the event in November, Hanna Birna played a crucial role in organising the Women Leaders Global Forum which launches on 26–28 November 2018 in Reykjavík. The Forum is annually co-hosted by Women Political Leaders (WPL) and the government and Parliament of Iceland and is co-chaired by leaders of the OECD, World Bank, World Economic Forum and others. The event has been described as “Davos of women – Iceland style!”
