Global executive consulting firm Egon Zender is holding Leaders & Daughters events to discuss the lack of women in leadership positions. The event series, which began in 2015 (Korea 2017), is a place where leaders (parents) and daughters come together, as their name suggests.
The event was co-hosted by and held at Seoul Foreign School this year as an opportunity for students and their parents to communicate with business trailblazers, who candidly shared advice and anecdotes on career paths and leadership values.
