Event Details

AmCham China Women Professional Committee would like to invite you to join the Women in Leadership Forum, co-organized by Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business (CKGSB) and UN Women, on November 28th, 13:30-18:00. AmCham China is the promotional partner for this event.

This year's forum will focus on leading business executives, social entrepreneurs, and diplomats from China and around the world who are working to solve society's most pressing problems through innovation. The first session – Government: Cultivating HER Leadership – with the first female British Ambassador to China, Dame Barbara Woodward and Australian Ambassador to China, Jan Adams, will focus on government initiatives in place and how public entities collaborate with private corporations to empower women. The second session – Business: SHE Changes the World – featuring Shirley Chen, Chairwomen of China's leading investment bank CICC, will explore the role women have played in China's business and technology sector and why having women at the top is good for business. The final session – Social Entrepreneurship: SHE Innovates for Humanity – hopes to inspire more women leaders to do good by hearing case studies from change-makers in the field of philanthropy.

CKGSB held the first Women in Leadership Forum in 2013 as a platform for celebrating success stories, empowering aspiring women leaders, promoting gender equality in the workplace, and offering an opportunity to create positive change. Since then, the forums have featured influential leaders including Sheryl Sandberg (Facebook's COO), Geoff Wilson (KPMG Asia's COO), Julia Broussard (Former head of UN Women China) and Yang Lan (Prominent TV Presenter and Co-founder of Sun Media Group). The 2017 Women in Leadership Forum convened a group of 500 participants, selected from 1,400 registrants, and more than 730,000 online viewers.
