UN SPECIAL RAPPORTEUR | DISCRIMINATION AGAINST WOMEN
“If we do not actively and intentionally include women, the system will unintentionally exclude them.”
Elizabeth, who’s just been appointed UN Special Rapporteur at Discrimination Against Women, will be talking about growing up with two sisters, her life as a working mother, and the importance of having courage in order to create change. She will be speaking about her belief that the world is at a real cross roads, and it’s not until those of us who care enough are prepared to continue to speak out that we will see change. Her opinion is that it doesn’t matter whether you’re doing it in a really small way just in your work team or family, or you’re leading a big organisation somewhere in Asia, but every one of us has a responsibility to step up in some tangible way and take action; so that young women will have a more empowered life than she’s had. Liz also gives her advice on the five areas that she’d recommend businesses should focus on around gender diversity. Finally, Liz also talks about the importance of engaging men in gender diversity, as the global establisher of the “Male Champions of Change”.
VICE PRESIDENT, CORPORATE COMMUNICATIONS | HUAWEI
Walter’s background in corporate communications and reputation management means he’s well positioned to provide some inspirational advice about managing your own personal brand, and communicating to be heard. He talks about how it’s not just the elements that make up the entire picture of you, but it’s also how you operate that makes up your personal brand. He will also be giving his tips on how to communicate when you don’t feel your voice is being heard. Some of his tips include: pre-selling your ideas into key stakeholder, role-play and rehearsal, knowing your audience and adapting your communication style accordingly.
DIRECTOR SMB | FACEBOOK
As former Head of Retail Channel Sales and Operations at Google, Sarita has recently taken up her new role as Director of Small Medium Businesses at Facebook. Sarita will be discussing taking career risks, career planning, and personal branding. Sarita will be sharing her views on how much she enjoys feeling the fear of taking a risk – because it means she’s motivated; and without that knot in her stomach, it means she’s not sufficiently challenged. She has always been bought up with the strong value of giving it a go and giving it your best shot, and if it’s meant to happen, it will. She also will be discussing the importance of her staying true to her values and will be offering her personal advice in promoting your personal brand.
