Join this event to meet an insightful group of three female business leaders and a male ally dedicated to empowering women at the workplace in Vietnam. Hear their inspirational stories and stories and learn how to empower yourself and your teams.
To mark the occasion of Vietnam Women’s Day, AmCham Vietnam’s Women in Leadership Committee will celebrate women in their multiple roles in society and business, and discuss specific steps we all can take to make our workplaces better places to work for everyone.
In recent years we’ve seen a shift of attention and a commitment of business leaders in Vietnam to foster more diverse, more equitable and more inclusive workplaces. How can you make a difference for yourself and your organization?
At this event, we will hear from three leading women in different industries and a dedicated male leader about initiatives, policies, or programs they have led or in which they have participated, as well as practices they have adopted that make a difference for them personally and for their businesses.
You will leave with clear ideas on how to empower yourself and create workplaces that empower women and all members of your team!
We hope to hold this event in a hybrid format, both virtual and in-person at the Reverie Hotel, followed by a networking reception, if local directives allow. Please indicate on registration if you wish to opt into the in-person event if allowed. In the event an in-person event is not possible due to COVID social distancing restrictions, you will be able to join the event via Zoom and we will refund the price differential. Let’s keep celebrating and empowering women at the workplace in Vietnam everyday!!
