This year’s Advance International Women’s Day Event in collaboration with the University of Zurich was an amazing success. Together with speakers, panellists and a very engaged audience, we rocked 8 March with a lot of good news! 71 CEOs and leaders of various organizations united with a pledge for gender equality and equal opportunities at the workplace. Convinced that it is good for business and economy at large CEOs publicly committed for concrete targets, measures and actions to increase the number of women in management. We were overwhelmed by the high number of commitments and high-level guests. With over 350 participants, the Grand Aula of the University was booked to the last seat. View all commitment here.
