The American Chamber of Commerce Women of Influence Awards are celebrating 16 years on November 12, 2019 with a phenomenal line up of speakers and award winners. Our theme this year is "Insights from the Edge: Pushing Boundaries and Unconventional Thinking". We're focusing on stories of perseverance, risk- taking and leadership from outside the confines of the corporate world.
This marquee event in November promises to be a thoughtful and inspiring celebration of the outstanding achievements of the women, men and companies in Hong Kong that are committed to driving gender equality and furthering the development of a more balanced and equal working environment for all. This event attracts annually over 300 professional women and men attending morning and lunchtime keynotes, panels and breakout sessions. The heart of the event celebrates the announcement of the Women of Influence Awards, with nine award categories that recognize seven high-achieving women, one man who has demonstrated support for the advancement of women and one outstanding company for women.
Join us for this not-to-be-missed event in Hong Kong, where we continue to honor and build on our mission to promote professional women's leadership and gender parity in the workplace. It's a day to celebrate progress, look toward the future, to inspire, and to explore what it means to have an impact.
