In celebration of the upcoming International Women's Day, CanCham would like to invite you to attend the first G8 Inter-Chamber Series in 2019: Career Women Forward-Dialogue with New Zealand Ambassador to China, on March 7, 6:30pm-8:30pm at the New Zealand Ambassador's Residence.
Hosted by New Zealand Embassy and supported by G8 Community, we are grateful and proud to have a dialogue with New Zealand Ambassador to China, H. E. Clare Fearnley, together with other female diplomats from the New Zealand Embassy.
During the talk, Ambassador Fearnley and her colleagues will share their journeys as career women. What are the lessons learnt and tips they wished they knew at the start of their careers? How to progress with knowledge and expertise, confidence and compassion? What are policies that a government, a company, and an individual can undertake to make that difference?
The discussion will be focusing on:
1) Their own career paths – lessons learnt, and advice for other women;
2) Government policies to promote gender diversity and career advancement.
The Gender 8 (G8) program was jointly initiated by eight chambers of commerce in China and foreign embassies in Beijing, including the Canadian Chamber, American Chamber, British Chamber, European Chamber, Australian Chamber, Finnish Business Council, Swedish Chamber, and Benelux Chamber and New Zealand Embassy Beijing. The G8 aims to showcase develop inspiring and professional women in each chamber's respective community, and also serves as a platform to enable established leaders to share the career stories and insights on policies to promote gender diversity and career advancement.
Join us for the dialogue with New Zealand Ambassador Clare Fearnley and don't miss the opportunity to network with women leaders from the G8 community.
