[Webinar] What Does Gender Equality Mean to Business- Training With UN Women
Women and girls represent half of the world’s population and, therefore, also half of its potential. Gender equality, besides being a fundamental human right, is essential to achieve peaceful societies, with full human potential and sustainable development. Moreover, it has been shown that empowering women spurs productivity and economic growth. In the business world, gender equality also matters. Companies having more women at top level positions are not only more profitable, but also more sustainable. To help our members and partners to have a better understanding on the gender equality issues, the European Chamber Nanjing Chapter is pleased to invite experts from UN Women China office to deliver a tailored training on the current development, outlook, and practice of gender equality.

[Onsite and Online] Women In TECH: Women Support Women
It has often been demonstrated that a diverse team with multiple female leaders can be more efficient and productive. The European Chamber has observed that growing numbers of female leaders from our member companies are willing to speak up and make themselves heard. The more women there are in leadership positions, the more they can do for other women.
The European Chamber provides a leadership development platform through the Cross-Industry Mentor Initiative (CIMI) and encourages potential future female leaders to step up to the C-suite level. As part of the CIMI, we will organise a series of activities and invite speakers from different sectors to tell their stories and share their experiences in leadership.
On 31st August, we are delighted to host a seminar highlighting the careers and experiences of three female leaders in technology sectors to inspire young professionals in our community.
