22 Nov Swiss IWIB Role Model Series: Annabella Bassler, Ringier

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

Dear Alumni,
You are invited to the next IWIB event on Zoom featuring Annabella Bassler, Group CFO, Ringier. It is the latest in the Swiss IWIB Role Model Series.

Swiss IWIB Role Model Series: Annabella Bassler, Ringier
November 22, 2021
Join us to engage with Annabella Bassler, Group CFO, Ringier, a Swiss-based media company with annual revenues approaching CHF1 bn. Annabella will talk about D&I, drawing on her own experience and what she has learned over the past 3 years leading the Ringier Equal Voice initiative, an internal and external strategy to improve the visibility of women in media. It uses tech (an algorithm to track media inclusion and coverage of women) as one of the ways to keep the discussion fact-based.

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. The series is organized in collaboration with Fish in the Boardroom, the bi-weekly podcast about D&I in Swiss leadership. The talk is accompanied by networking circles for attendees to network, share experiences and learn from each other. If you have any questions or wish to contribute, do not hesitate to contact Andrea A Ullmann podcast@fishintheboardroom.ch.
