FWA Champions are individuals in senior leadership positions who champion and support women seeking success on both the professional and personal fronts. They effect change in their organisations and are firm supporters of gender diversity and inclusion in their workplaces and society.
FWA members get a chance to interact and meet our Champions in our FWA mentoring programme and as speakers in FWA-led events. In addition to this, the Conversations with FWA Champions series allows our members deeper interaction with our Champions in a small-group setting, to hear the experiences and journeys of our Champions and to learn from them.
We are pleased to announce our latest Conversation with FWA Champion Ian MacDonald, Head of Hong Kong and Deputy Head of Asia Pacific, Aberdeen Standard Investments
