While issues surrounding gender equality in the workplace have become more prominent than before, women continue to face a myriad of challenges in the workplace and particularly at the senior leadership level. How can women overcome the barriers to attaining senior roles and what can men do to facilitate this? What role can corporations play in fostering women in leadership positions and what are some of the trends we are seeing? At the 5th Women in Leadership Forum, we will focus on unleashing the power of female leaders across business, government, academia, and sports in China and around the world.
Featuring insights from The Hon. Gabrielle Williams MP, Minister for Women, Youth, and Prevention of Family Violence, Victorian State Government of Australia; H.E. Helena Sangeland, Ambassador of Sweden to China; H.E. Clare Fearnley, Ambassador of New Zealand to China; Li Na, former professional tennis player, CKGSB Alumna; Xiaoping Yang, Chairman and President of BP China, among many other speakers, this forum will offer inspirational and practical business takeaways, as well as the opportunity to network with leaders across multiple industries.

The Women in Leadership Forum has become a flagship event jointly held since 2013 by the Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business (CKGSB) and United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN WOMEN). As a platform for empowering female leaders, promoting gender equality in the workplace, celebrating success stories, and offering opportunities to create positive change, the Women in Leadership Forum offers unique insights from distinguished leaders like Sheryl Sandberg (Facebook’s COO), Barbara Woodward (British Ambassador to China), Jan Adams (Former Australian Ambassador to China) and Jean Liu (President of Didi Chuxing Technology Co), among many others.
