The Women’s Development Programme – HKU and Meraki

Session 1: 26 – 28 September | Session 2: 14 – 16 November 2019 | The University of Hong Kong, Cyberport Campus 


   

The University of Hong Kong, Faculty of Business and Economics in partnership with Meraki Executive Search & Consulting, have launched a new programme to enable organisations to develop, retain and motivate their high-potential female talent. As an extension of the Women’s Directorship Programme (board governance programme), the new Women’s Development Programme serves to support female executives during the transition from mid to senior management positions. 

As a recent study shows, mid to senior level management is when most female executives are at risk of leaving the workforce, resulting in companies losing vast amounts of experience, insights and potential. The Women’s Development Programme provides tools to enable women to manage multiple competing priorities at work and home, ensuring they are best positioned for success.  The programme serves to inspire, engage and open up new networks to support women as they advance in their careers.

The six-day programme kicks off in September and includes teaching modules such as: Strategic Leadership, Negotiation and Collaboration, Strategies for Future Business, Persuasive Communication, Managing Your Ecosystem, Ethics and Compliance.  The programme is also supported by a number of senior female role models as guest speakers.
