The Queen's Gambit - How to Play for Equality

Working and living with partners, colleagues and even family is like playing a game of chess. One is attentive towards another’s moves, and reacts carefully. We think and plan ahead. Until it comes to a competition, a duel, a one on one match between the queen and the king. A metaphor for a male and female, competing in the process of crystalizing one clear winner. This, is what FEM aims to resolve and end. The FEM summit addresses the fact that it does not always have to come to a fight and that it is not about determining a sole winner. It discusses how men and women can move forward as a team through mutual empowerment.
