About the Event
Although the discussion on gender diversity in various fields and their related problems has been kicked off, there is still a lot of work to be done and change that has to take place. It will require equal participation from corporates, academics, governments, religious institutions and most importantly a radical shift in our thinking process.
We invite all INSEAD students, NAA and the public to join us in this engaging conversation and networking event where we have an exciting list of confirmed speakers.
Women in Business Club (IWiB)
The INSEAD Women in Business Club aims to create more opportunities for women to become stronger leaders and future role models.
The club was created in 2005 to promote awareness on gender diversity issues in the business world across the INSEAD community and beyond.
MBA for Women Foundation
The MBA for Women Foundation provides financial support to young and ambitious women who want to pursue an MBA at a leading business school.
“It has been 2 years since I graduated from INSEAD, and I never stop thinking what a great opportunity it was. INSEAD became the thread that today connects my profession, my passion as well as my friends! At the time of joining business school, my primary concern was access to funds to support my MBA education. I lived in Singapore at that time but didn’t qualify for education loans since I was not a citizen. Similarly, even though I was going to study in France, I could not take a loan in Europe. Obtaining funds in India was proving to be quite difficult as not only was the cost prohibitive but also needed a collateral. MBA for Women Foundation was my blessing at the time—with affordable interest rates and no collateral. It enabled me to study at INSEAD, gain employment as a management consultant and be selected for Homeward Bound (women leadership program on gender diversity and climate change).”
