On March 28th, 45 women senior business and legal professionals attended MoFo Women Hong Kong’s cocktail reception and private VIP tour of Art Basel Hong Kong.
Marcia Ellis, co-head of the firm’s Asia Private Equity practice, provided the welcoming remarks for the evening’s cocktail reception, which was followed by private tours of the exhibit.
All participants joined the private tours, exchanged views on issues women in business face today, and networked with each other while enjoying the artwork.
Women legal professionals from a number of companies were in attendance, including Bain Capital, BlackRock, CBRE, Ping An, China Telecom, Morgan Stanley, UBS, and VMware.
The event is part of a broader MoFo initiative for women professionals in Asia. Earlier this year, more than 30 senior women leaders attended MoFo’s fifth annual Tokyo Women in Business Series at the BVLGARI Ginza Tower. MoFo also hosted the inaugural Singapore Women’s event at the Louis Vuitton Island Maison in late 2017, which more than 60 women legal executives attended.
