Women vs Women: Do some women block other women's careers?

In honour of International Women's Day, WMN has a very special panel discussion. Three very special industry panelists will be discussing this hot topic. 

Former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright once said: “There is a special place in hell for women who don't help other women" and she found lots of agreement across men and women for this admonition.

So what is the fate of women who not only don't help other women in their careers, but hinder, sabotage and block?

As women's groups everywhere celebrate International Women's Day in March, Women Media Networks is hosting a panel discussion that is a little less conventional, and likely controversial, but relevant and real.

All of us probably have stories about women bosses and managers who were helpful or hellish. Or female colleagues who were catty instead of collegial. Some of us have also endured outright warfare as we advanced in our careers from our own "sisterhood".

Are some of these anomalies and caricatures of the dreaded "lady boss"? Have things changed as more women take the helm of companies? Are there cultural elements at play, where patriarchal and traditional countries deliberately enjoy inflating the legend of terrible career women?

Or is it a cold, hard fact that most women prefer not to discuss openly?


Join us in an invigorating debate about the role, responsibility and expectations around women's impact and influence on other women's careers. Share your anecdotes and advice.

The venue is once again the Helena May Club on Garden Rd. There will be a cash bar available. 

Entry is free for WMN members, non-members of WMN are HK$80 (US$10.30) with paid pre-registration or HK$100 on the day. Spaces are limited so registration is required to avoid disappointment.
