D&I Seminar: Redrawing the Balance! 

On the afternoon of April 27th, 2024 BeLuxCham, HAWEE HCMC Business Women Association, NordCham Vietnam and Women In Business SC of EuroCham Vietnam gathered 80 participants to discuss and put a spotlight on the importance of D&I.
The event started with an opening welcome by co-chair of WIB SC EuroCham Zaida de Jager, followed by the first keynote speech of Grant Thornton Vietnam on the latest numbers on female empowerment globally and in Vietnam and the 3 ways of the road to parity. The first panel discussed the different aspects of D&I across industries. Highlighting the challenges of recruitment, mobility and policies regarding respect in the workplace in its broader meaning, as well as how to go from diversity as a first step to inclusion through different pathways.

The second part of the seminar focused on the future strategy, kicked off by Mimi Vu from Raise Partners on the impactful speech on Vietnamese culture, the behaviour and expectations towards women, as well as the impact of D&I on the economic growth in Vietnam. The second panel continued this discussion, highlighting the experience from the educational, banking, media and tech point of view and the consequences this brings into Vietnamese society and what still needs to be enabled.
The event was closed by an impactful speech of H.E. Mr. Karl Van den Bossche, Ambassador of Belgium to Vietnam, on the policies of D&I in Belgium, and Europe, linking it with the current status of Vietnam, and the road that has been walked until today and what are the takeaways from this.

We inspired people to hashtag#walkthetalk, spread the word and put more focus on D&I and the next steps still to come.

A big thank you to our partners and sponsors for enabling this event!

Get ready to explore innovative strategies, share insights, and foster partnerships that promote equity and balance across all sectors.

It’s time to reshape the landscape together!

D&I is an important component associated with the social aspect of ESG (Environmental,
Social, Governance), where businesses create an equal environment for employees, a
space where they can be proud, confident, and true to themselves, without gender
discrimination, family circumstances, or differences in each person’s background.
Diversity is about recognizing the collective combination of differences among personnel,
including internal characteristics, external characteristics, and organizational
characteristics. It allows organizations to be innovative and allows companies to
understand the consumer better, as consumers are diverse.
Key takeaways
– Importance of Cross-Industry Collaboration
– Challenges and Opportunities
– Building Inclusive Partnerships
– Leadership Perspectives
– Innovative Approaches
– Next Steps

Keynote speech will be provided by Grant Thornton Vietnam Business Development &
International Liaison Director.
The first panel will highlight D&I across industries, the
second panel the stakeholders’ influence on the long-term implementation of D&I.
Speakers include specialists from a variety of industries like education, banking, social
networking platform, consulting, and Clothing.

To be able to further put a spotlight on D&I and the importance for all companies to
redraw the balance, we invite you to support our seminar for the occasion of International Women’s Day.

The “D&I: Redrawing the Balance” will take place on March 27 th at Hilton
Saigon in HCMC, Vietnam. The event is an afternoon seminar from 2:00 pm – 5:30 pm.

We believe that with your participation, we can make a significant impact in creating
awareness for the future work to ensure that we redraw the balance and enable D&I’s
current challenges to become future opportunities.
