Handling Sexism Diplomatically:
Reaffirming Women’s Value in the Workplace

In the business world as well as in government, women sometimes find themselves in situations where their job roles and assignments, treatment in the workplace, and opportunities for promotion are determined by their gender rather than their skills, experience, and qualifications. Join us for an open discussion on creating a respectful and inclusive work environment, how to react to workplace discrimination, and how to support colleagues dealing with sexism at work.

To celebrate Women in Diplomacy Day, AmCham members and their colleagues are invited to a Women in Business Committee panel discussion on June 25 to explore how every woman can be a diplomat in tackling hard topics productively for herself and her community.

AmCham’s Women in Business Committee promotes professional women’s leadership and aims for gender parity in the workplace in Vietnam. We believe that empowering women for economic inclusion spurs social development and sustainable economic growth. AmCham strives to increase the participation of women in the leadership of their organizations and in AmCham by offering programs and networking opportunities targeted at the individual and organizational levels to drive both personal development and systemic change. This committee aims to engage both men and women at senior levels in supporting leadership diversity; to provide a platform for development of executive women; to raise the visibility of senior level executive women within the business community; and to be a source of women speakers/panelists within AmCham Hanoi.

Visitors to the American Center must undergo security screening of their personal electronic devices (laptops, cell phones, fitness trackers, etc.). No knives, box cutters, razors, scissors, firearms or flammable liquids are permitted; additional other potentially dangerous items may also not be allowed. If you are unclear as to whether an item is permissible, please do not bring it to this event. Individuals will be refused entry if they are in possession of a banned item. Please also note the following:

  • Visitors must bring an official ID (National ID, driver license, passport or other government issued identification).
  • Guests should arrive 30 minutes prior to the event to ensure they can get through the screening procedures in time.
  • Consider leaving your unnecessary portable electronics at home to shorten screening time for all guests.
