The International Women’s Day is our great occasion to learn from, network with and celebrate authentic and successful women, as well as men actively engaged in accelerating the efforts to achieve a more gender balanced world. 

Join us on the evening of 8 March 2019 to celebrate together over dinner, and then dance the evening away at Le Châtelain Boutique Hotel!

Thanks to our sponsors, we have prepared additional surprises to make the evening unforgettable.

During this special and festive night, we will recognise powerful role models and acknowledge all that has been achieved so far, while reflecting on what still can and needs to be done to advance greater gender balance in our societies.

Bring your partners, colleagues and friends and let’s #BalanceforBetter together! We want to spark conversations that matter amongst women and engaged and supportive men.
