A special evening with Jane Horan

WMN is honoured to have Jane Horan, EdD, author, speaker and authority in cross-cultural leadership, unconscious bias and career transitions, visiting us here from Singapore.

One of the biggest challenges facing organisations today is retaining talent and building a diverse leadership team.  Is there a lack of talent or does leadership look different across cultures?  This highly interactive session shares research, presents questions,and engages in a discussion on leadership diversity and sustaining success.

Based on a 6 year narrative study across multiple cultures in Asia, Jane's book How Asian Women Lead: Lessons for Global Corporations uncovers a different picture on leadership and careers. There is no doubt the next decade of growth will focus heavily on Asia but are MNC's prepared to capture organizational and human capital opportunities?  The current practice in leadership selection and talent management has allowed for a very small percentage of women in decision-making roles illustrating how organisational processes are out of date, carry a Western lens, and are ill-suited for Asian markets.

Socialistas, the hashtag for this event is #WMNhoran. 

The event is FREE for WMN members and HK$60 (UD$7.70) for non-members. Please register above.
