The American Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong proudly presents the 11th Annual Women of Influence Conference & Awards on Friday, November 14th at the Four Seasons Hong Kong.
Join us for this renowned signature event and one of Hong Kong's most established women's conferences as we take a fresh, business-focused look at how our world is changing alongside women's careers with 'Evolution' as this year's theme.
We all know that women in organizations are a key driver of value creation and competitive advantage. But how can we nurture change in family-oriented Hong Kong society? And where is the next wave of seed funding/angel investing taking us, with women at the helm of both the investing side and the entrepreneurship side? In addition, we will address how men and women evolve and find success in non-linear career journeys, just some of the many questions we will tackle during a morning of discussions, presentations, networking and idea swapping. This year's conference will also introduce interactive social media audience systems and for all to share their own 'recipes' on how to use technology and other techniques to make our lives smarter.
Once again, the culmination of the conference will be the presentation of the 11th Annual Women of Influence Awards which will recognize; three high-achieving women, a man who has demonstrated support for the advancement of women and one outstanding company for women.
