Chinese Arbitral Women from Hong Kong to the World
29 October 2018 | 16:30 - 18:00
The WIA inaugural Hong Kong event will take place on the first day of the 2018 Hong Kong Arbitration Week. Leading female arbitration practitioners originally from Mainland China will share their experiences and thoughts on international arbitration, Chinese domestic arbitration and the role Hong Kong has played in their careers.
HKIAC launched its Women In Arbitration initiative (WIA) in early 2018. WIA is an initiative committed to the promotion and success of female practitioners in international arbitration and related practice areas in China. WIA provides a forum for members to consider and discuss current topics, grow networks and business relationships, and develop the next generation of leading female practitioners.
In 2018, WIA conducted two events, the inaugural event in Shanghai on 8 March, International Women’s Day, and the second event in Beijing on 8 June bringing together the most distinguished and active female practitioners. The events jointly attracted attention from more than 20,000 people.
Remarks: This seminar will be conducted in Mandarin. Simultaneous Interpretation to English will be available. This event is free of charge. Everyone is welcome to attend this event.
