Lerchenfelder Straße 1-3, 25hours Hotel beim MuseumsQuartier
1070 Wien, Austria

Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP, Vienna looks forward to inviting you to a relaxed breakfast event on Saturday, 21 October 2017 from 10am to 1pm at 25hours Hotel, Vienna, the day after GAR Live Vienna to discuss the under-representation of women in the legal field in particular in arbitration and international law.

We have secured some excellent prominent women in arbitration who will tell “tales from the front line”, i.e. provide an insight into their personal experiences, the challenges they have faced on their journey and how, in their opinion, the goal of parity can best be achieved. You can look forward to listening to the experiences of Francesca Mazza, Secretary General of the German Institution of Arbitration (DIS), Ulrike Gantenberg, Partner, Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek, Düsseldorf and Jennifer Younan, Partner, Shearman & Sterling LLP, Paris.

Further, our Individual Leadership Facilitator, Natalie Berthier-Ortmann will provide an insight into the soft skills required for this goal of parity to be achieved.

Finally, our Key Note Speaker, Rashda Rana SC, Arbitral Women will conclude by giving her outlook on the further steps required to achieve gender parity.

There will be plenty of opportunity for questions and we hope for a lively and fruitful discussion.

For more information take a look at our flyer.
