More information about Gender Equity Conference:

In 2016, the first Gender Equity Conference, organised by FLEXImums, was held with international gender equity experts, senior representatives of organisations who have made changes to improve gender balance and professional women to openly discuss and debate on how to improve gender-balance and women in leadership in Hong Kong.

The 2nd Gender Equity Conference took place late September 2017 with a focus on Fixing the leaking female pipeline.

In 2018, the conference was titled Empowering High-Potential Female Talent. We had a closer look at how coaching, mentorship and sponsorship programmes play an essential part in career development and progression for high-potential talent.
