AmCham China and WEConnect International in China have embarked upon a collaboration to showcase expert perspectives on women’s economic empowerment and the positive impact of women’s leadership in the global economy. The Economy Summit is looking to collaborate with leading women’s organizations to provide a platform for sharing best practices in developing women leadership and networking with likeminded people from the media, non-profit organizations, and top businesses. Input from male advocates will also be invaluable; gender equality is an issue that concerns everyone.

We are working with a variety of international and Chinese organizations for this event, including
  • UN Women
  • Lean In China
  • Beijing Women's Network
  • VIVA Professional Network

What is The Economy?
Statistics show that when women lead, or are promoted to high positions, business profitably soars. However, only 8% of board members in China are women, despite comprising 50% of entry-level positions. This summit will bring discussions relating to unconscious biases, mentoring, violence against women, and equal opportunity barriers to the fore.
$2,400,000,000,000 – the total value of The Economy

The summit aims to conclude with best frameworks on developing gender-responsive policy and corporate practices that would effectively support women’s leadership and entrepreneurship in the future. Such discussions endeavor to help build a series of tangible best practices that will then be included in AmCham China’s American Business in China White Paper as a part of AmCham China’s business advocacy efforts.

Please join us on April 12th, 2017 to be a part of making the world of business a more prosperous and promising place for professional women.

Expected Attendees
The Summit event expects about 150-200 attendees that include:
  • Chinese government officials
  • Leading corporate executives
  • Women entrepreneurs
  • Thought leaders from think tanks
  • Partner organizations
  • Media

Sponsorship is now available! For more information, please refer to the sponsorship package attached or contact Catherine Liu (cliu@amchamchina.org, +8610 8519 0864).
