What's On

According to the "MDS 2018 Asia Gender Research - Advancing Female Leaders in Asia" which was published on 8 March 2019, women do have leadership strengths which set them apart from men. A clear development agenda needs to be set up for women to move into leadership areas traditionally dominated by men. It is also a challenge for the male-dominated boards and leadership teams on the subject of "Diversity and Inclusion (D&I)". Join this seminar to gain insights from the research findings, as well as to learn from and be inspired by a great panel of D&I practitioners in Hong Kong.

Outline:
Presentation of the research findings – "Advancing Female Leaders in Asia"

• For male leadership teams who need to make diversity work
