THE 女 ECONOMY SUMMIT
When and Where
9:00 am - 11:00 am
Renaissance Capital Hotel
61 Dongsanhuan Middle Road, Shuangjing, Chaoyang District
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 女 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
- Women’s Professional Network
- China Association of Women Entrepreneurs
What is The女 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 女 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.
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
