Diversity & Inclusion has become a top priority. The research is extensive and conclusive, particularly in relation to gender balance. It is time to act and prepare internally to welcome this much needed change, which leads to improved performance by a significant margin. Research has proven how gender-diverse companies outperform their peers not just financially, but creatively and through increased collaboration.

Our Story

In 2016, the first Gender Equity Conference was held with international gender equity experts, senior representatives of organisations who have made changes to improve gender balance and professional women to openly discuss and debate on how to improve gender-balance and women in leadership in Hong Kong. 2016 conference

The 2nd Gender Equity Conference took place late September 2017 with a focus on Fixing the leaking female pipeline. 2017 conference

Following the feedback received from the 300+ attendees over the past 2 editions, it has become clear the most pressing issue they face in achieving gender equality and balance, is the progression of the identified female talent to rise to the top.

The third Gender Equity Conference examines the different resource-efficient best practices that top-performing organisations use to support their high-potentials, including coaching, mentorship and sponsorship. We will look at what has worked and what hasn’t in moving towards Gender Equality. As in previous years we have focused on organisations that are taking action here in Hong Kong and recognising the different challenges that apply in our region compared to Europe and the U.S.
