According to the World Economic Forum's Global Gender Gap Index 2020, China only ranks 106 out of 153 countries. A career in some specific industries, such as technology, logistics, or construction, has previously been seen as more of a "male" career path and the gap in those sectors is even wider.
At this month's WPC lunch, we are very honored to have Steven Cao, Chairman of Chayora China, and Martin Winchell, Managing Director of Schneider Logistics Greater China, joining us as guest speakers. They will share how they help their female employees grow and promote leadership development in their respective industries and careers, and why they think "gender equity" is so important.
We have also reserved enough time for Q & A. Michael Hart, Chairman of AmCham China, Tianjin will moderate the Q&A session. Please prepare questions and feel free to send them to us before the event. We also welcome "Male Allies" to joining this special luncheon, sharing your experience as well as listening to voices from your female colleagues.
About WPC and WPC events:
This committee is designed to foster a sense of community and support among women professionals in Tianjin. During WPC events, a female industry leader engages her colleagues with a presentation that often speaks to the challenges that women face within the corporate world, while also challenging women on how to be better leaders and coworkers.
