Women In Business (IWIB) Events
INSEAD Women In Business (IWiB) organizes a series of events throughout the year, which are well-supported by INSEAD students, alumni, and faculty. Activities include the annual INSEAD Women in Business conference, global networking events with recruiters, on and off campus social events, round-table talks, and presentations. Through these events, IWiB hopes to inspire and strengthen an inclusive community that advocates gender equality in the workplace.
2017 Women in Business Conference
IWiB will host the 2nd annual INSEAD Women in Business Conference at the INSEAD Asia Campus in Singapore on 22 November 2017 from 4:30 PM to 9:30 PM.
This year’s theme is Social Disruption: Momentum for Change. This is part two of last year’s event.
Although the discussion on gender diversity in various fields and their related problems has been kicked off, there is still a lot of work to be done and change that has to take place. It will require equal participation from corporates, academics, governments, religious institutions and most importantly a radical shift in our thinking process.
We invite all INSEAD students, NAA, and public to join us in this engaging conversation and networking event where we have an exciting list of confirmed speakers:
Illian Mihov, Dean, INSEAD
Pilasinee Kittikachorn, Partner and Managing Director, Bangkok, BCG
