Risk Hong Kong Women in Leadership Lunch

Asia Risk has made a conscious effort to prominently feature women in our speaker line-up and advisory board; however we have been disappointed by the poor levels of female representation in the sector. It has invariably proven a struggle for us to invite women speakers to participate in our events and feature in the publication. It appears to be consistent across the field that women are pigeonholed into certain roles, ones removed from decision making in this area.

We would like to be part of the movement working to change this reality. Join us for a discussion with your industry peers about how the culture can be changed and how women can move into leadership positions and carve out a space form themselves. Discuss how businesses benefit from diversity in their top leadership positions.

We aim for this meeting to be a starting point for firms in the Risk Management and Investment Management sectors to foster their female talent and for women already in the industry to connect and share their experiences and successes.
