Supported by the Italian Chamber of Commerce, the Women’s Leadership Network Committee (WLN) is a network of women professionals based in Hong Kong. WLN Members regularly gets together for networking events, business seminars on career advancement and informal gatherings. The WLN is an instrument for Hong Kong professional women who seek to expand their professional network, learn about Hong Kong companies’ best practices, exchange personal experiences and build strong personal relationships. The WLN also collaborates with other Hong Kong and Macao women networks, associations and NGOs to promote a more diverse, inclusive and therefore competitive environment in the local corporate scene.



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.
