Details of the guest speaker(s) will be released shortly; however, it is no coincidence that the lecture is timed to coincide with International Women’s Day. This year’s IWD campaign theme is #EmbraceEquity.

“Equity isn’t just a nice-to-have, it’s a must have. A focus on gender equity needs to be part of every society’s DNA. And it’s critical to understand the difference between equity and equality. When we embrace equity, we embrace diversity, and we embrace inclusion.”

MBA student Ghaith Al-Taie

This subject will feature heavily in the talks of the guest speakers, where we will learn how they promote diversity and inclusion in their careers. Are you in? Will you come and embrace equity with us?
