In the wake of the global #MeToo movement, questions are being raised about the rate of progress towards increasing diversity in the workplace. How much progress has been made to include women in senior management positions and what lessons have been learnt from Europe? Our speakers will share a European perspective on mixed leadership and how the European Women’s Management Development network (EWMD) is working to help women in business. This event is one of a series of the activities arranged for the visit to Taiwan by an international delegation of 35 female managers from EWMD. The delegation will include representatives from companies such as Ernst & Young, Procter & Gamble, Union Investment Bank, TUV Rheinland, Continental, Lenovo, Thomas Cook, Union Investment Bank and others from the tourism, consumer goods, banking, investment, tax consultancy, automotive, computer, telephone, internet, relocation and pharmaceutical industries.
About EWMD
EWMD was founded in 1984 with the vision of improving the quality of management with respect to women and men, children, age and the cultural diversity of Europe. Today the main goal of EWMD is to achieve more visibility and participation of qualified women in leading positions in business, commerce and wider society. Quality levels in management can thus be raised and enriched through more women and greater diversity. The network links professionals from all areas of business, education and related fields. EWMD has about 900 individual and corporate members across Europe and beyond (including the USA and Asia). EWMD activities include networking events, workshops and webinars, national and international conferences, platforms for its corporate members and international delegations. A global board supports the international exchange between members and EWMD chapters in different countries.
