The movement’s founder, Trish Hakata, told NewsDay Life & Style that the second edition had an all-male panel as they had realised men play a big role in the rise of successful women.

“We decided to bring men on the panel and get their perspective to get their views on things like, are men prepared for the successful women in the workplace? Are they intimidated or they are supportive?” she said.

“In terms of women’s work life balance, how do they view it as men and what role are they playing to help build supportive structures which promote and protect women with high positions?”

Hakata also encouraged women to attend the event in their numbers and be equipped through insights from the panellists.

Go Getter Movement was established inspire women to reach their full potential through inviting people of influence, including men, to share their stories and help others tap into their full potential.
