In partnership with the Australian Embassy in Korea, AustCham Korea invites you to our upcoming International Women's Day webinar, #BreakTheBias.

Bringing together industry leaders with extensive public and private sector experience across Asia, the panel will facilitate a compelling conversation exploring the challenges women face across diverse sectors and organisation types.

Panellists will address some of the barriers encountered by women across different industries - covering biotech, investment, energy and government sectors, and explore policies that have facilitated and supported the advancement of highly qualified women in business. They will also share their thoughts on ways to champion a gender-inclusive world moving forward, in both Australia and Korea.

Hosted at 12 pm KST (2 pm AEDT) on March 4th, in the run-up to International Women's Day on March 8th, the webinar provides a platform for senior business leaders, policymakers and young professionals to connect, exchange insights and share ideas on ways to navigate the complexity of doing business in the Asia region.

Dr Alexandra Siddall, Deputy Head of Mission, Australian Embassy to the Republic of Korea, will provide some introductory remarks for the event before opening the discussion up for our panel of speakers, which include:

This event will be moderated by Jo Billing, Director & Co-CEO at JOST & Co, and Board Member at AustCham Korea.

Our expert panellists will share insights on:

  • How the 'break the bias' mantra plays out in different industries across Australia, Korea, Hong Kong and Vietnam
  • Challenges faced by female leaders in male-dominated industries and strategies for navigating these environments
  • Insights into managing gender biases across different cultures, particularly when working with or managing multicultural teams
  • The type of initiatives that have shifted the needle in transforming women in leadership across the region

This will be based on the panellists' own journeys of working in leadership roles across the region.
