Ivey, Microsoft and The Women’s Foundation partner to empowers young female as future leaders in IT

Ivey Business School, Microsoft Hong Kong and The Women’s Foundation jointly organized a 4-day camp for aspiring women leaders in Hong Kong. This came to the second year of joint effort on this program from these three organizations. Sixty young women from eight Hong Kong universities and one Macau University were selected from over 250 applications to attend the camp. With a growing demand for leaders in the technology sector, aspiring female university students are expected to take advantage of the opportunities in this field and join the ranks of this innovative, fast-paced and exciting sector.

This is a rare opportunity for the younger female generations to learn about women’s leadership and the technology industry and to help them to sharpen their skills and extend their network. They met some exceptional men and women leaders from government, academia, private sector, and NGOs and worked alongside them to present a real world business case.

Professor Chris WH Chan, Associate Dean of Ivey Business School - Asia, led a case discussion about Microsoft’s Consumer Office 365, which is a case for the camp developed by Dr. Janet De Silva, who was one of the judges of the case competition.
