11 Oct Swiss IWIB Role Model Series

IWIB INSEAD Women in Business / 18:00 - 19:00

Dear Alumni, 
We are pleased to invite you to engage with diversity and inclusion (D&I) role models in our new IWIB event series on Zoom. The series is organized in collaboration with Fish in the Boardroom, the bi-weekly podcast about D&I in Swiss leadership. The talks will be accompanied by networking circles for attendees.

Swiss IWIB Role Model Series
October 11, 2021 
The first session features Kathrin Amacker (IDP-C’20Jun). Kathrin will reflect on how she drove D&I in a corporate environment and how she is leveraging her board roles to make an impact on business as a force for good.

With the Swiss Role Model Series, IWIB aims to make visible to alumni and guests some successful pioneers for gender equality, and to foster discussion amongst participants to learn from each other. In the first part, we learn from our role models about how they got there and how they drive change. In the second part, we will form smaller groups providing you a platform to network, share your own experiences and learn from each other. If you have any questions or wish to contribute, do not hesitate to contact Andrea A Ullmann andrea.ullmann@protonmail.com.
