What is Girls Takeover?
Since 2016, Plan International has organised more than 5,200 Girls Takeover campaigns globally. Stereotypes hold girls back in how they see themselves, how they are treated and the opportunities they have throughout their lives. By occupying spaces and places where they are rarely seen or heard in, girls and young women demand actions and solutions to ensure all girls can learn, lead, decide and thrive.
We are honoured to collaborate with Credit Suisse and offer our participant a chance to work with Mr Carsten Stoehr, Chief Executive Officer of Greater China and Head of Asia Pacific Strategic Products at Credit Suisse. The girl will be given a chance to join a pre-board meeting with Mr Stoehr and the bank’s Head of Corporate Citizenship, Asia Pacific, and learn about Credit Suisse’s corporate citizenship strategy and business in the region. She will also meet senior staff across various functions, such as Diversity & Inclusion, Corporate Citizenship, IT and Sustainability.
Below are some reasons to get involved in a Takeover:
- Impactful: #GirlsTakeovers are an opportunity for local, self- identifying girls to meaningfully impact and contribute to an aspect of a company’s work
- Professional development: The takeovers present a two-way knowledge and professional development coaching exchange between the girl and the company’s executives
- Meaningful engagement: It’s important that youth are engaged throughout all sessions and given the space to share their insights, learn, and ask questions
