Overview of International Women's Day Events from 2011 - 2017

8 March 2011 - 8 March 2017

'INSEAD Celebrates Women' is an annual INSEAD initiative to join the global celebration of women’s achievements during International Women’s Day. The series aims to draw attention to a variety of issues concerning women and to developing and advancing women in business.

Following the success of previous years, INSEAD is pleased to offer a series of events on all three campuses (Asia, Europe & Abu Dhabi) to increase awareness of the role of women in society.

We would like to thank our partners for their support for this cause.


International Women's Day

The first International Women's Day events were held on 19 March 1911 in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. More than one million men and women rallied to end discrimination against women on this day, campaigning for women's rights to work and vote.


Some interesting findings about women ...

Education

  • Girls now outnumber boys in secondary school in 45 developing countries*
  • There are more young women than men in universities in 60 countries*
  • Two thirds of the 774 million illiterate adults worldwide are women – the same   proportion for the past 20 years and across most regions**
  • In tertiary enrolment, there are more women than men globally, except in sub-  Saharan Africa and Southern and Western Asia**
  • Women in tertiary education are significantly underrepresented in the fields of science and engineering; however, they remain predominant in education, health and welfare, social sciences, and humanities and arts**
  • Worldwide, women account for slightly more than a quarter of all scientific researchers – an increase compared to previous decades but still very far from parity**
  • Use of and access to the Internet grew exponentially in the past decade, narrowing the gender digital divide – however, women still do not have the same level of access as men in most countries, whether more or less developed**
  • 72million children – 54% of them girls – are out of school**
     

Work

  • 552m women joined the global labour force between 1980 and 2008*

  • Women are predominantly and increasingly employed in the services sector**
  • Occupational segregation and gender wage gaps continue to persist in all regions**
  • Women spend at least twice as much time as men on domestic work, and when all work – paid and unpaid – is considered, women work longer hours than men do**
  • Becoming the Head of State or Head of Government remains elusive for women, with only 14 women in the world currently holding either position**
  • Of the 500 largest corporations in the world, only 13 have a female chief executive officer**


Health

  • About 2/5 of girls are never born due to a preference for sons*
  • Globally, a sixth of girls die in early childhood*
  • Globally, a third of women die in their reproductive years*
  • Women live longer than men in all regions**
  • Breast cancer among women and lung cancer among men top the list of new cancer cases globally**

Society

  • Nearly 4m poor women go “missing” each year in developing countries*

Faculty Lecture: Beyond Tiger Mothers

19:00 - 20:15 | Amphi Mork

Speaker: Randel Carlock, The Berghmans Lhoist Chaired Professor of Entrepreneurial Leadership, Senior Affiliate Professor of Entrepreneurship and Family Enterprise, INSEAD

Asian women face unique challenges as they struggle to meet the demands of their families and careers. Their role as a parent during their children’s adolescent years is especially challenging because the next generation will live and work in a new world shaped by technology, economics and cultural forces.

What is the ideal modern Asian mother? How should she teach and coach her teens to ensure they become capable and satisfied adults? How can she instill the right values and raise them to exercise their independence in an effective yet loving way?

Lunchtime Film Screening: To Educate a Girl

12:30 - 13:45 | Amphi 102

What does it take to educate a girl?

Award-winning filmmakers Frederick Rendina and Oren Rudavsky travel to Nepal and Uganda set out to find out why there are more than 110 million uneducated children (as of 2000), with girls making up more than two thirds of the number.

Framed by the United Nations global initiative to provide equal access to education for girls by 2015, To Educate a Girl takes a ground-up and visually stunning view of that effort through the eyes of girls out of school, starting school or fighting against the odds to stay in school.

 The career corset: constraint and desire in the making of leaders

12:00 - 13:30 | Amphi A

Speaker: Jennifer Petriglieri, Assistant Professor of Organisational Behaviour, INSEAD

Lifestyles, organizations and work itself have changed profoundly over the past three decades. But have our images of what it takes to lead changed as much?

In this interactive session, it explored how the persistence of traditional expectations in contemporary organizations can hamper the career progression, effectiveness and satisfaction of a new generation of leadership talent—women and men alike. Jennifer argued that these leadership images act like "career corsets." They force young women in particular, but also many men who embrace contemporary ideals of masculinity, to sacrifice self expression for access to leadership roles, and puts them in the position to be chastised for not being as 'authentic' as leaders are meant to be today. In making ourselves desirable, in other words, we become dispensible.

The session discussed the implications of this tradeoff and how each one of us—young men and women and their more senior mentors alike—often act in ways that perpetuate the very images that limit us.

The Art of Negotiation

17:30 - 19:00 | Amphi Valeria & Rudolf Maag

Speaker: Horacio Falcao, Affiliate Professor of Decision Sciences, Executive Education Programme Director, Negotiation Dynamics, INSEAD

Negotiation is a critical part of our daily life. Each day, you negotiate with your spouse, your children, your boss, your colleagues and even when deciding where to go for drinks with friends. Is there a winning formula to negotiating well? Do men negotiate better than women? What negotiation skills can women hone to their benefit? Horacio shares practical insights for women on how to negotiate effectively in work and life.

Exploring your family communications

12:30 – 13:45 | Amphi B

Speaker: Randel Carlock, The Berghmans Lhoist Chaired Professor of Entrepreneurial Leadership, Senior Affiliate Professor of Entrepreneurship and Family Enterprise, INSEAD

It’s often repeated that while you can choose your friends, you can’t choose your family. Partly because of this truth, communication in families can be challenging – especially with the complexities of dual careers, blended families and difficult children. This workshop will stimulate discussion and exploration of your family’s communication processes and teach you new skills that you can use tonight.

Randy Carlock's teaching and research interest is international business families, he holds post graduate certification in family therapy and counselling and is the father of three teenage daughters.

A walk around campus to raise awareness of breast cancer. Departure from the Euro Asia Centre reception, around the campus (route de la Faisanderie), along the Parvis and down to the bar.

Many thanks to SODEXO Prestige who kindly sponsored this event by offering a free main course for the first one hundred participants registered for the walk.

Breast cancer among women and lung cancer among men top the list of new cancer cases globally.

Guerilla Parenting: Raising Effective and Happy Teenagers

12:30 - 13:45 | Amphi B

Speaker: Randel Carlock, The Berghmans Lhoist Chaired Professor of Entrepreneurial Leadership, Senior Affiliate Professor of Entrepreneurship and Family Enterprise, INSEAD

One of the challenges that all parents face is learning how to help their children develop the maturity to cope with the turbulence of the adolescent years. The parenting role seems overwhelming because teens today are directly influenced by powerful external economic, social and cultural forces. This world is both complicated and scary for modern families. Parents have to create a family environment that fosters personal growth and responsible children. The family has to provide a safe context for teenagers to exercise their independence, both through positive reinforcement and constructive conflict. 

This session explored the underlying dynamics of affection and conflict in the family. It focussed on parental coaching actions designed to improve family harmony, to help see both our teens and ourselves in a more positive light, and to understand why sometimes our child "needs to hate us a little" to become a fully functioning adult.
