Event report

Past Event | Inspirational Women Leaders' Series #11

In celebration of International Women’s Day, we were delighted to welcome our Women in Business Committee Co-Presidents, Anne Tan (Head of HR APAC at Campari) and Chloé Vialard (Senior Associate and Head of Strategic Partnerships, International Arbitration at Shearman & Sterling), as guest speakers for the Inspirational Women Leaders’ Series session.

Thank you very much, Anne and Chloé, for being both inspirational and genuine in sharing your personal experiences as executive leaders and your contributions to DEI - Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion- initiatives.

Thank you also to Marine Veillon, Managing Consultant at Humans Matter for skillfully moderating the session.

Please find a few key takeaways below:

  • Fighting against gender bias starts at home. Recognising the influential power of storytelling for children, the narratives we share can shape perceptions and foster inclusivity from a young age.
  • Find your tribe to bring you positive energy. Building a support system and surrounding yourself with like-minded people who uplift and empower you, can significantly contribute to personal growth and resilience.
  • Be confident enough to listen to your own force. Only you know what is best for you.
  • Implement workplace policies to empower women and promote equality: this may include initiatives such as providing paid time off for secondary caregivers and offering more training for HR staff in handling sensitive issues.

This event was supported by our Committee Partner, BNP Paribas.

Our "Inspirational Women Leader Series" provides a distinctive platform for members to connect with special guests, discussing personal careers, women's aspirations in their industry, and promoting a vision for workplace gender equality. The program also serves as an opportunity to share insights on diversity-centric best practices and challenges.
