Empowering 13:30 – 13:35 Welcoming Remarks Mary Clark, CMO & EVP Product, Synchronoss 13:35-13:40 Keynote Qi Xiaoxia, Director General, Bureau of International Cooperation, Cyberspace Administration of China 13:40-13:45 AMO Award Presentation: Asia Mobile Industry Leadership Award Sihan Bo Chen, Head of Greater China, GSMA 13:45-14:25 Panel Discussion Changemakers: How do we make change, rather than waiting for it? The numbers of women on corporate boards globally is increasing, albeit slowly. However, the pace of change is much slower in APAC, with Fortune Global 200 companies having only 7.4% female representation on their boards. One study suggests that a minimum of three female board members are needed to realise the benefits widely attributed to women, such as a more collaborative leadership style, and ultimately increase business performance. How do we as an industry ensure that we are doing everything to encourage as many women as possible into board positions and cultivating future female leadership? Moderator: Mary Clark, CMO & EVP Product, Synchronoss Panellists: • Huang Yuhong, Deputy General Manager, China Mobile Research Institute • Amanda Woolverton, Vice President, Marketing & Communications, Ericsson • Yoko Kurosawa, General Manager of Next Generation Network Development, KDDI • Grace Chan, Senior Vice President, Product Management, China, Mastercard Encouraging 14:25-14:35 Gender-Balanced Hiring: Gender Insights Report LinkedIn recently released their Gender Insights Report to show findings on women finding jobs, particularly in the tech sector, and to give suggestions on gender-balanced hiring on LinkedIn. A senior executive from LinkedIn China will share some insights of the report and discuss how LinkedIn supports and promotes gender diversity in the workplace. • Joyce Zhang, Head of HR, LinkedIn China 14:35 – 14:50 Diversity & Ethics in the age of AI AI ethics, development & unconscious bias: Attracting diverse talent to the field of AI development: awareness of biases within AI and overcoming these • David Bishop, Principal Lecturer, Centre for Asian Entrepreneurship and Business Values, The University of Hong Kong 14:50 – 15:00 Securing the Talent Pipeline: Inspiring the Next Generation Despite advances in recent years, reports still suggest that women are less likely to choose a career in science and technology than men. Role models can play a significant part in inspiring girls and young women and engaging them with STEM subjects, but in some regions, we also need to address gaps in digital literacy and access. • Gerda Binder, Senior Regional Advisor, Gender & Development, East Asia & Pacific, UNICEF
