Focusing on empowering women at senior levels, the Women in Leadership Forum has become a flagship event held since 2013 by the Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business (CKGSB), among which four editions were co-hosted with United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women).
The 2023 online edition of the Women in Leadership Forum was organized by CKGSB with the participation of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) on December 1st with a focus on Africa, a continent of the future.
As a platform for empowering female leaders, promoting gender equality in the workplace, celebrating success stories, and offering opportunities to create positive change, the Women in Leadership Forum offers unique insights from distinguished leaders like Sheryl Sandberg (former Meta COO), Barbara Woodward (then British Ambassador to China), Jan Adams (then Australian Ambassador to China), Jean Liu (President of Didi Chuxing Technology Co), and Li Na (Former Professional Tennis Player), among many others.

I think the idea of collaboration and partnership is intrinsically important in this area. And the idea of bringing an internationally recognized institution together with one of the emergent great business schools of the world, this is fantastic.
