Panel discusses gender balance in the workplace on International Women's Day

In celebration of International Women's Day 2018, Hogan Lovells Lee & Lee, Macquarie, and J.P. Morgan came together to host a panel discussion based on this year's theme #PressforProgress.

This client collaboration was treated not only as an opportunity to unite friends and colleagues, but also an opportunity to discuss gender balance in the workplace. The concept for the event came about after the three firms worked together on a significant transaction, each of whom involved a female in a senior position. Stephanie Keen, Singapore Managing Partner, Hogan Lovells Lee & Lee; Verena Lim Managing Director at Macquarie; and Ee-Ching Tay, Managing Director, J.P. Morgan, came together after the transaction and were inspired to host an event for International Women's Day 2018.

Alexander McMyn, partner at Hogan Lovells Lee & Lee opened the event by introducing the panellists. The panel comprised of:

  • Jennifer Lewis, Managing Director, Communications, GIC (Moderator)
  • David Martin, Managing Director, J.P. Morgan Securities 
  • Stephanie Keen, Singapore Managing Partner, Hogan Lovells Lee & Lee 
  • Andrew Downe, Head of Commodities and Global Markets, Macquarie
  • Myia Ross, Head of New Customers and Partnerships, APAC, Google
The panel represented diversity leadership across finance, technology, and professional services industries in Singapore. They addressed how best to combat stereotypes, the vital role men play in promoting and sponsoring women, the debate around quotas, and the contribution diversity brings to delivering business success.

The event was extremely well attended and was a great success.
