This month, speakers from around the world will meet for an online summit to “inform, train and inspire business leaders”. She got it – The WealthiHer Global Summit is a two-day event that brings together experienced business women from the UK, US, Hong Kong, Singapore and mainland China.
The event will take place online on March 23rd and 24th. The content can be viewed three months later. It contains a schedule of sessions and lectures designed to encourage and support women to excel in their fields. According to the organizer, WealthiHer, attendees will receive “practical, accessible tips on how to move forward and up, regardless of whether you are an entrepreneur or a company leader”.
The WealthiHer network includes 13 financial institutions that work together to drive economic progress and the empowerment of women on a global scale. The organization was launched on International Women’s Day 2019 by two UK-based entrepreneurs: Tamara Gillan, founder of two award-winning advertising agencies, and Lauren von Stackelberg, expert on inclusion and diversity.
“We are a movement for change to make the financial industry fit for the future. Essentially, we are a network of very dedicated partners from various companies who strive to work together and share ideas to take the industry’s approach to female clients change, “says Von Stackelberg.
Keynote speeches at the opening summit include designer Anya Hindmarch, whose talk will serve as a “Handbook for Life”, and Rosewood Hotel Group’s CEO Sonia Cheng, who will speak about family values and how they relate to business. The crowded schedule will also include pitching master classes, honest testimonials, and business-focused discussions such as “Why is the value of women lacking in finance?” and “What female leadership looks like in Asia and why more women are needed”.

What are some of the barriers women face in getting to the top of their fields?
Efficiency and ability to access resources, where resources are capital, human talents, and market confidence, are certainly one of the major obstacles.
A close friend of mine, whose company she built from scratch, made her debut on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange this year and told me about it recently during her IPO [initial public offering] Preparation The PR surveys showed that your gender alone is a negative factor in the high-tech and growth growth of your company and therefore negatively affects the potential share price. In the end, my girlfriend had to walk away from the public eye to protect her company’s initial stock price.
People tend to imagine that a woman’s success is related to her powerful husband or wealthy father – that comes from a male character rather than from them who made their own success. As a woman, you just have to convince people that being a woman is not detrimental to what we do. Only when we break these stereotypes can we achieve a balanced playing field and starting point for men.
