Each session will invite an Ambassador’s spouse or an Ambassador to share insights on two subjects:
1) Her own career path – lessons she has learnt, and advice for Chinese women;
2) Government policies to promote gender diversity and women career advancement – current policies in the respective government, and policies that can potentially be implemented in China.
In the first of the series, we are honored and delighted to have Ms. Melodee Hanes, a successful prosecutor and former Acting Director at the U.S. Department of Justice, spouse of the U.S. Ambassador, Max Baucus, to the People’s Republic of China. Ms. Hanes will share her journey as an inspiriting career woman. What are the lessons learnt and tips she wished she knew? How to progress forward with knowledge and expertise, confidence and ambition, and elegance, if possible? What are policies that a government, a company, and an individual can undertake to make that difference? Join us with a dialogue with Ms. Hanes to hear her insights.
