Supported by the Italian Chamber of Commerce, the Women’s Leadership Network Committee is an organization aimed at empowering women in the workplace.

Women’s empowerment does not only mean helping women acquire new skills and self-reliance, but it mainly implies increasing awareness about the potential women have to bring innovation and creativity in the workplace. Indeed, although gender inequality in the labour market is still widespread, some recent studies have shown that companies employing women in senior and high-ranking management positions actually perform better financially than those companies where only men are in top positions.

The Women’s Leadership Network Committee constantly cooperates with and supports other organizations and institutions engaged in women’s empowerment and gender equality, such as Women’s Committees of other Chambers of Commerce, Community Business, The Lean In Circles and The Representation Project.

Thanks also to the cooperation with other organizations, our Committee provides a unique chance to meet other women who share the same values and mission. The great networking opportunity offered by our Committee enables our Members to join hands and forces to take action for a real gender equality in the workplace.



Led by a strong faith in women’s natural endowment and by a full commitment to women’s empowerment, The Women’s Leadership Network Committee organizes several activities linked to the topic of women and business, while offering a unique networking platform. These activities consist of both seminars and more informal events (breakfast meetings or afternoon teas) organized on a monthly basis.

Our Committee also takes action by discussing the most relevant regulations linked to women in the workplace with Hong Kong counterparts. Last but not least, it provides an effective help for Italian businesswomen looking for contacts in Hong Kong.
