To mark the International Women’s Day, British Consulate-General in Chongqing work with Chongqing Women Talents Research Institute and Longhu Paradise Walk to organize a ‘Chevening Talks: Women’s Career Development’ as a part of ‘Be Yourself’ Campaign.
As an established national brand, the Be Yourself campaign has been seen by millions across China, and communicates the UK’s commitment to working together with China in tackling gender equality across a range of industries. Women’s empowerment is an economic necessity. ‘Advancing women’s equality could add $12 trillion to global GDP by 2025’ (McKinsey 2015).
This TALKS will invite two Chevening scholars and Director of Pingan Bank Jiefangbei Branch to share their own experience of growing as a professional/business lady and their views of the importance of gender equality to economic and social development.
