The Women's FoundationEllevate Hong Kong and Back to Work are delighted to present a two-part series on Real Life Examples & Best Practices for Return to Work Programmes.

Part One will focus on the business rationale for adopting Return-To-Work programmes and hiring returnees. We will hear from a range of global organisations that are running successful RTW programmes. 

Part Two will focus on success markers for effective RTW programmes. TWF will share its new best practice guide to RTW programmes, and hiring managers and returnees will share their success stories and advice.

We encourage participants to attend both events. Part two date tbc. 

Part One

In today's economy, and even more so moving forward, careers marked by transitions, pivots and reinventions are likely to become the norm and particularly so for women given that we currently tend to take more career breaks.

Historically, a successful career has been characterised by a steady upward progression in title, in responsibility and in pay. In the future it will be more about proactively constructing an interesting and varied career through building one's skills base and making more lateral moves.

Topics for discussion include:

  • What is the business rationale for hiring returnees?
  • International research and case studies of successful returnships from the UK and US
  • What do RTW programmes look like for global companies?


  • Caroline Carson, CEO and Founder, Back to Work Hong Kong


  • Richard Seeley, Regional Head of Operations (Investment Bank), APAC, Bank of America Merrill Lynch
  • Heather Granados, APAC Account Manager, FDM Group
  • Claire Beardsworth, Executive Director and co-head of Talent Acquisition for Asia Pacific, Goldman Sachs

Light refreshments will be provided, courtesy of FDM Group.
