Diversity and inclusion are the linchpin of She Means Business, created in partnership with tw tagungswirtschaft and part of EduMonday, a programme of free learning and development taking place on Monday 20 May, the day before IMEX in Frankfurt opens.
Anne Kjær Riechert, co-founder of a non-profit social enterprise teaching digital skills to refugees and migrants, launches She Means Business – and EduMonday – with a keynote, sponsored by H-Hotels and open to all EduMonday attendees. In her keynote ‘Grit and Grace’ Riechert will share the story of how she founded and grew the ReDI School of Digital Integration and her work as mentor and ambassador for the Grace Female Accelerator which supports female-led start-ups.
Men – your voices are important too
She Means Business then continues with an afternoon of sessions where women – and men – from across the world will share their experiences and lessons on gender equality or other diversity challenges. Senior Executives from organisations including PWC, Deutsche Bank and Lufthansa HR Management, Eurometropole de Strasbourg, Rwanda Convention and Melbourne Convention will be among the speakers.
Planners, buyers and other visitors can then explore destinations, venues, tech providers and more at IMEX in Frankfurt from 21 – 23 May 2019. Among the many exhibitors already confirmed are New Zealand, Senses of Cuba, Barcelona Convention Bureau, Visit Brussels, Kempinski Hotels, Meliá Hotels and Latvia.
