How Women Work has always been about connecting people – as it states in our mission: “We reach hearts and minds, break down barriers and promote understanding between cultures and genders.” This year, for our seventh annual conference, we are delving even more deeply into the subject matter with our theme “Connecting the Dots”, which is all about moving forward together because we can achieve more when we collaborate than when we compete. On a personal and corporate level it is also about connecting strengths, talents and opportunities in a new way to create new possibilities and choices. It is about involving men in cocreating gender equality; it is about getting corporates on board and committed. In brief, it is about creating mutually beneficial opportunities through connection and integration.
