On 12 June our distinguished panelists will give you their views on what it takes to be a good panelist/moderator/public speaker, provide some tips on how to get your name out there and be invited for public speaking opportunities and what firms and event organizers can do to support more female speaker participation in conferences.

  • #Post Me Too – What’s next?
    26 June 2018

    The #MeToo movement that started in the U.S. last fall has led companies to look into their anti-harassment and anti-discriminatory practices and has led to some soul-searching about how to keep women safe in their workplaces. Yet the larger discussion about what the movement means for women's empowerment in companies and boardrooms is just beginning.


    The WIFA Networking committee will host a conversation on these topics on June 26 with a panel of distinguished industry experts. We want to make it an interactive discussion about what men and women can do to move beyond #MeToo to create dynamic environments for real inclusion, and also on women's empowerment and mentorship in companies and boardrooms.

    We have confirmed Jodi Schneider, Senior International Editor from Bloomberg as the moderator and Staci Ford from HKU as one of the panellists.
    Duncan Watt partner at Eversheds will give a quick introduction before the panel.

    Time: Registration 6.15 pm and starts at 7pm; please arrive punctually
    Venue: Eversheds - 21/F Gloucester Tower, 15 Queen's Road Central, Central

  • Mentor Mentee Programme (MMP) Launch Event Review

    The Mentor Mentee Programme 2018 has officially launched and our orientation event has taken place on April 19th 2018 at Macquarie Group.

    We had the pleasure to invite Donna Titley from Ellevate to lead on a facilitated session on how to maximise mentor mentee relationship through goal setting. We continue to see positive impacts on both professional and personal development on our programme participants. Previous mentors who have established lasting and impactful relationships with their mentees have also returned to the programme and shared with us their journey.

    The programme has gained incredible momentum over the last 5 years, if you would like to hear about how the 2018 programme is tracking, advisory on how to launch a program in your firm or entry criteria to the 2019 programme please do reach out via Grace (grace.lee@wifasia.org)

We are currently looking for 3 mentors for IT students (entry level and intermediate). This is a 1 year commitment, and will take about 1 hour per week.
