Dr. Christa Uehlinger, Member of the IRCI Global Advisory Panel, holds a doctorate in law from the University of Zurich. She is a skills developer and intercultural advisor who has worked for over ten years in international business as a manager and also as a consultant for global organizations and companies.
Today she runs her own company christa uehlinger linking people (www.linkingpeople.ch) and works internationally with leading companies from different industries as well as municipal employees, nurses, teachers and multicultural teams supporting them to discover the beauty and strengths of cultures, to share the sensation of being different and thus to make cooperation more effective, in part through her encouragement of "lateral thinking."
Notwithstanding substantial gains made in the West over the past several decades to level the playing field and bring about greater equality between men and women, pay gaps persist, and in many countries, corporate leadership remains heavily dominated by men.
IRC Global Executive Search Partners convened affiliates and business partners at three regional summits covering Asia Pacific (APAC), Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and the Americas in early 2019 to spark an intercontinental discussion about leadership and organizational preparedness in an era characterized by accelerating technological change and disruption.
Recently, IRC Global Executive Search Partners convened a summit in Gurgaon bringing together senior executives from leading organizations of the Asia Pacific region to explore what organizations and leaders can do to prepare their companies for the future. Many of the themes that emerged are timeless; others are specific to the modern age and the opportunities and challenges of the digital era.
