Women on Boards was founded by Ruth Medd back in the early 2000’s when I was involved in the formation of Women in Finance, NSW (now Women In Banking and Finance). Ruth and Claire Braund have had a tremendous impact on the boardrooms of Australia and advancing the careers of many senior women and aspiring directors.
Following successful launch of WoB last year in Hong Kong and the UK, they will be returning to my favorite city in the week commencing the 11th of May with a number of practical workshops, networking events and corporate training opportunities.
Getting Started: Realising your board potential – 11th May, 9.00am – 12.30pm
Boardroom Conversation: Are Global Boards Asia Capable – 12th May, 6.00pm – 8.30pm
Create your Board ready CV – 14 May, 9:00am – 1:00pm
I encourage you to participate and extend the invitation to other senior women in Hong Kong who are interested in career development as well as pathways to the boardroom.
For details of the events and to register go to the Women on Boards website.
