As the world changed in front of our eyes in 2020, the events we attended and organized shifted online. However, this year Great Place to Work®, the global authority on workplace culture, will be hosting the Best Workplaces for Women in Greater China™ Awards Ceremony 2021 event LIVE. We all missed the physical and face-to-face powerful communication and connections that are typical of a live event. So, by taking into consideration some safety measures and size concerns, we decided to bring you this new, cosy experience to celebrate our first Best Workplaces for Women in Greater China™ Awards Ceremony.
The event aims to honour, celebrate and invite award-winning organizations from different industries to share insights and practices on how to foster and sustain a truly equal and inclusive workplace culture while building GREAT WORKPLACES FOR ALL.
Also, there will be a panel discussion, we will be inviting representatives of local enterprises and award-winning organizations to share and discuss some of the action to promote gender equality and how we can build a positive employee experience for all.
Join us on 13 May 2021 for the panel discussion of the above-mentioned topics to learn from your peers and industry thought leaders. Celebrate with us as we unveil the Best Workplaces for Women in Greater China™ 2021 list.
