Gender Equity Conference 2018

GENDER EQUITY – Empowering High-Potential Female Talent

FLEXImums brings the third Gender Equity Conference to Hong Kong on Thursday, 11 October 2018 at The Swire Centre of Excellence, Oxford House in Taikoo Place.

The Diversity & Inclusion Conference will focus on identifying and empowering high-potential female talent - accelerating the progression of leadership talent with a focus on coaching, mentorship and sponsorship.

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.

Our 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.
