Mazars sponsors the "Gender Equality from a Man's Perspective" panel event

The next Women in Business Panel Event organized by the British Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Hong Kong will be held on Wednesday 25 June 2014.

“Gender Equality from a Man’s Perspective” is the title of the latest piece of research conducted by Mazars and WoMen'Up. It analyses the perspectives of men from 60 nationalities on evolving male/female relations.

To take the discussion a step further, Mazars is sponsoring a panel discussion which will look at men's perspectives on gender equality in the workplace, as well as in the private life. Do men's visions matches women's expectations? Do they play a part in reducing stereotypes? The discussion will also seek to find out whether men feel threatened by female leadership in the workplace and their views on "men's networks" in response to a growing number of "professional women's networks".

The panel discussion will be followed by a cocktail reception allowing guests to continue the debate and to network with the speakers and guests.

Registration starts at 6pm


Auditorium, Bloomberg L.P.
