Despite growing research on the benefits of gender diverse boards — including improved company performance, sensitivity to consumer trends, and stronger governance — Asian companies lag international counterparts in placing women in executive positions, according to the latest Women on Boards Hong Kong Report. Only one-fifth of Hong Kong boards have a 20% or higher female participation, with the overall representation of women on the boards of Hong Kong’s leading companies at a paltry 12.4%. The Women’s Leadership Initiative of the ULI is launching a series of events targeted at senior women in the real estate industry in Hong Kong to provide education and awareness of what is takes to become a non-executive board director and we welcome applications to attend.

The first event will be an introduction to becoming an INED, generously sponsored by KPMG. Come along and learn about:

  • Different types of directors and their responsibilities and obligations
  • Corporate Governance in the boardroom
  • Risks, liabilities and time commitment
  • What sort of companies seek real estate experience on their board
  • How to secure a board position

Presenters:

  • Andrew Weir, Global Chair, Real Estate and Construction, KPMG
  • Sarah Bower, Senior Counsel, KPMG
