    The Great Debate 
    Celebrating International Women’s Day

    There has never been more discussion on gender equality or reforms to progress change.  But how much progress has actually been made? Despite the recent public marches in support of women and gender equality, data shows that equality is still far from a reality. Have business and political leaders merely been paying lip service with minimal, tangible impact?  As 2017 ushers in more conservative agendas across the globe, will momentum slow or even begin to decline?  Has women’s progress peaked? 

    To celebrate International Women’s Day 2017, Austcham’s Women in Business Network is delighted to host what is sure to be a very fiery debate on this topic. Join our debating panel of corporate, not-for-profit and media personalities for a night of stimulating debate in Hong Kong on the 2nd of March 2017.
