Special WMN HK event in celebration of Women's International Day

Special panel discussion: 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 once again be moderated by Mia Saini, reporter for Bloomberg TV.

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 only kidding ourselves? This controversial issue will be the focus of the panel's discussions.

We look forward to seeing you at this special event on the 26th of March!

Tickets: Members - $50 Non-members - $150 - Includes light breakfast snacks - Please register online

    About having it all I would like to share this sentence from Maria Estenssoro, Argentinian politician and writer:
    The great women managers of today specifically do not want to compete with men, but they deeply believe in their capacity to share with them the responsibilities for public and private life
