Topic: Deconstructing the "Having it All” myth.
In celebration of International Women's Day, WMN HK are having a very special event. To those of you who went to last year's exciting CASBAA event it will be a similar format and in the same fabulous Bloomberg auditorium.The panel discussion will feature WMN's founder (and mother of two and the COO of The Red Flag Group) Bobbi Campbell, as well as guest speakers. It will be moderated by Mia Saini, a reporter for Bloomberg.
All too often we hear the words "you can have it all”, particularly when we see high-powered women, such as Marissa Mayer (CEO of Yahoo) claiming success in juggling both work and family. Is it true – can we really have it all, or are we really kidding ourselves? This controversial issue will be the focus of the panel's discussions.
For you socialistas the hashtag for this event is #wmndecon. Please follow the event and post!
