After the successful kick-off of the Role Model Series with Kathrin Amacker in October (watch the recording here – Password IWIB), we now continue in November with the second event with Annabella Bassler, to which I would like to cordially invite you.

As a reminder, each event features an inspiring guest speaker from the Swiss leadership community who is strongly promoting and establishing these topics in his or her work environment. In a very personal and practical way, the guests talk about their experiences, learnings and best practices on their way to bring more gender equality into the business world. The talk is followed by networking circles for attendees to network, share experiences and learn from each other.

Join us to engage with Annabella Bassler, Group CFO, Ringier, a Swiss-based media company with annual revenues approaching CHF1 bn. Annabella will talk about D&I, drawing on her own experience and what she has learned over the past 3 years leading the Ringier Equal Voice initiative, an internal and external strategy to improve the visibility of women in media. It uses tech (an algorithm to track media inclusion and coverage of women) as one of the ways to keep the discussion fact-based.

You may remember Annabella from my podcast episode #9 Using Artificial Intelligence to Measure Unconscious Bias with Annabella Bassler.
