This afternoon, I joined the session entitled “GENDER DIVERSITY: AS THE FOUNDATION FOR SUSTAINABLE COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE IN ASIA” at AESC Digital World convention. This convention is 3-day occasion and right now was the final day. As it’s world, the time schedule appears to be like fairly unusual (my session which begins at 1:20 pm JST was listed round midnight -I suppose it’s US East coast time?)
I had obtained the inquiry and invitation to affix some time in the past by my web site, with checklist of attainable session matters. Most of them had been associated to variety and girls. I picked up the subject above as I may discuss function of variety at company board and so on. from my very own experiences.
At our prep. assembly some time in the past, we determined to do it in dialogue format the place moderators ask me questions and I reply, somewhat than me making slide presentation. Actually, I welcome the dialogue/interactive format significantly better than presentation. I used to be fairly apprehensive, nonetheless, about whether or not technical association would work, as I had some problem accessing throughout our prep. assembly. I managed to substantiate the log in process this morning (this week has been fairly hectic for me, as I used to be touring!) and we began the session.
For the session, I had executed some analysis on the standing of variety and company efficiency and so on. (Gender Hole report and so on), In the course of the 25- min. session, (with no technical downside!) I talked concerning the variations in girls management standing in Asia by international locations and the way it has advanced. I shared my very own expertise of serving on company board (I served as non-executive director at greater than 10 corporations up to now! I discovered)
I’m relieved we had been in a position to end the session with none downside and am grateful for such a alternative. I want I had time to look at different periods. (
