'Equality in Business - Best Practice in Diversity & Inclusion' - Event in Zurich

  • September 26, 2019
 
Huge thanks to all who attended our event 'Equality in Business - Best Practice in Diversity & Inclusion' event last week in Zurich. The event was co-hosted with EF Education First and held at their wonderful offices, the old swiss stock exchange building - an amazing setting.
 
Many thanks to our inspiring speakers Liz Johnson – Paralympian Gold Medallist, Heidi Robertson – Head of Global Diversity & Inclusion at ABB, Alkistis Petropaki – General Manager of Advance – Gender Equality in Business and Marc Secretan – Partner and Inclusion and Diversity Leader at PwC Switzerland. Liz Johnson shared some quotes which really struck a chord;
 
“Why should we choose to be great at work OR great at home”
and
“Being different is a strength”
 
What a privilege to follow on from our Equality in Finance event with HEINEKEN in Amsterdam, held towards the end of last year, with this event in Zurich, attended by contacts from our network of mid to senior management professionals across Finance, BI & Data, HR, Procurement, Supply Chain and Operations.
 
The large number of attendees was representative of the level of interest in this topic. Discussion, both during the event and throughout networking afterwards, was thought-provoking and heart-felt, and we hope that all attendees were able to take something away - from both from the breadth of presentation content and the personal interactions.
 
If you are interested in attending future events or are perhaps working for a business which could be interested in co-hosting with us, then please don't hesitate to contact jenny.callum@emearecruitment.eu.
