Intelligence Squared proudly presents four leading female voices to debate the motion The Hand That Rocks the Cradle Cannot Rock the Boardroom. In what promises to be a thrilling celebration of International Women’s Day, the panel will shed light on whether a good mother has time to be a good CEO.
Is it a myth that women can have it all, all of the time? Or do the rising numbers of female executives in Hong Kong and around the world suggest otherwise? Does the glass ceiling exist as a barrier to the boardroom, or is the only limitation to a woman's professional success her personal ambition?
Hear from our expert speakers on whether maternal responsibilities can be reconciled with professional stardom. And decide whether “tai tai” or “tycoon” carries a bigger stigma for women in Hong Kong.
Join in the debate on 3 March 2014, the first Intelligence Squared event to be broadcast from Hong Kong on BBC World. Tickets now available for sale from www.hkticketing.com | +852 3128 8288.
