Gender Diversity Conference


Together with Young Austrian Arbitration Practitioners (YAAP) and Austrian Arbitration Association (Arb|Aut), we are pleased to invite anyone interested to our event entitled „Gender Diversity in Führungspositionen. Sonntagsreden und Realität.“ The idea for this event was triggered by the fact that the topic is widely discussed, but far from being solved, in international arbitration. In other professions we also see a lot of development, but still no equal representation of women and men in leadership positions. The event is intended to learn concrete findings and proposals for solutions from esteemed specialists. 

The event will be held on 9 September 2019, 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. (preceded by coffee and succeeded by a reception), at the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber in Vienna. The programme can be found here

The keynote speech will be held by Ms. Daniela Bankier, former Head of Gender Equality and current Head of Programme and Financial Management, European Commission Directorate-General for Justice. The panel will consist of top notch experts and business leaders. Confirmed speakers include Prof. Paul Oberhammer (University of Vienna – Dean of the Faculty of Law) and Prof. Heike Mensi-Klarbach (WU – Department for Gender and Diversity in Organizations). 

The event will be held in German. It is free of charge. Please register at Diese E-Mail-Adresse ist vor Spambots geschützt! Zur Anzeige muss JavaScript eingeschaltet sein!.
