EP's Molly Crockett is among 100 women and men named by the World Economic Forum as Young Global Leaders. She joins a distinguished and eclectic group that include an Ivy-League Village Chief, A Space Archaeologist and A Scientist Engineering Human Organs.

Molly joins an established community – the Forum of Young Global Leaders – which is made up of leaders from all walks of life, every region of the world and stakeholder group in society who operate as a force for good to overcome barriers that stand in the way of progress.

Current and alumni YGLs head governments and Fortune 500 companies, have won Nobel Prizes and Academy Awards, and have become UN Goodwill Ambassadors and Social Entrepreneurs. The new YGLs will be asked to work with one another over the next five years to resolve some of the world’s toughest challenges. A selection of community impacts can be found here.
 
54% of the YGL Class of 2017 are women, and the majority of the cohort are from emerging economies. Taken together, they represent the very best of their generation and advancing new models of sustainable social innovation. The full list can be downloaded at http://wef.ch/ygl17.
 
“We’ve asked these young leaders to join the YGL community because of their ground-breaking work, creative approaches to problems and ability to build bridges across cultures and between business, government and civil society. These leaders highlight the potential for innovation to correct the shortcomings in our economies and societies,” said John Dutton, Head of the Forum of Young Global Leaders at the World Economic Forum.
 

Molly's work on altruism, morality and value-based decision-making  has achieved worldwide recognition through numerous accolates and high-impact publications.
