About the Event

For International Women's Day, PWG has organized an event around Gender equality and Career development opportunities for Women in the workplace with the support of professional women from Advance.

During the event, the Advance & St. Gallen 2022 Gender Intelligence report will be presented, followed by a panel of women who will discuss the outcome of this insightful document, as well as other related questions. 

Exclusively for this event, PWG has created a 10-questionnaire survey, which will provide some actual insights on the current professional status of women in Switzerland, and whose results will also be presented during the event.
