PROMOTING AND DEVELOPING THE IMPACT OF WOMEN’S LEADERSHIP FOR THE BENEFIT OF ALL
This is the focus of a dynamic and interactive one-day conference to be held in Geneva in November, featuring top international speakers and aimed at professional women.
The event, organised by Geneva-based experiential learning company MyPhy, will take place at the Restaurant Hôtel du Parc des Eaux-Vives on Tuesday, 5 November.
The conference is aimed at women leaders and aspiring leaders who want to enhance their skills, advance their careers and expand their network.
The programme consists of keynote speeches and interactive panel discussions, bringing together approximately 60 women leaders in business, academia, politics, civil society and international organisations, from Switzerland, the United States, Pakistan, Slovenia, Israel, Tunisia and Portugal.
“The conference aims to promote and deepen the growth and impact of women’s leadership as a positive force for change for the benefit of all,” says Cassandre Burgess, Co-Chair of the MyPhy Women’s Leadership Conference.
