We plan to organize 3 to 5 events a year. Every event will be different. There will be 3 main, well-organized events by the committee where we want to learn from each other and create something, either workshops, co-design sessions, keynote speeches, etc.
We are convinced that establishing a deeper dialogue with men will ultimately lead to greater diversity. Therefore, men are welcome to selected events. Moreover we like to explore ways how to support them to motivate more women for a career in tech.
Besides the regular events there will be more casual get-togethers without a specific agenda, where we meet for drinks to mingle and make new friends.
NEXT EVENT IN ZURICH: April 5, 2017
Breakfast Fireside Chat mit Anson Chan, Zürich
Our last event was about role models. Continuing on this topic, we will host an exclusive event with Hong Kong’s former Chief Secretary, Anson Chan. Chan grew up large parts of her childhood solely with her mom, shouldering he responsibility of bringing through 8 kids after the early death of her father. She later joined the civil service as the second woman who was employed there and quickly moved up the ladder to hold the second highest government position in Hong Kong. She was called the lady “with an iron fist in a velvet glove” and lauded as one of the most powerful women in Asia. It’s an honor for WE SHAPE TECH to host her for this exclusive Fireside chat. Please note that we only have 20 tickets available.
From the heart of Europe, Zurich, the Asia Leaders Series provides a crucial intersection between the East and the West, where visionary leaders meet, build trust, and move the world forward. More information on other speakers coming to Zurich this year can be found at www.asiaseries.ch
