In celebration of Women’s Leadership and Empowerment, the Beijing Women’s Network is hosting our first women in Leadership Gala. This will also serve as the official launch of the Beijing Women's Network!
The purpose of this event is to bring together individuals and organizations whom are concerned with women’s issues, professional development and deeply pressing social issues. The event will also be a celebration of the vibrant community that has formed around our core values: Connect, Share, Grow.
Part 1: Professional Development Workshop Series The first half the evening we begin with two workshops, led by the Minster Counselor Commercial Affairs at the US Embassy, Sarah Kemp and Reuters Breaking Views’ China columnist, Rachel Morarjee.
Part 2: Keynote Address and Seventeen Spotlight Dinners For the Keynote Address, we have invited our esteemed guest Zoe Shen - Vice- Secretary General at One Foundation, to speak and reflect on her personal story and experience. Afterwards, over the course of the formal sit-down dinner, we will have each of our table mentors facilitate a discussion regarding the topics assigned to each table. The official list of table mentors will be released after Early Bird Registration on October 11th and guests will have the opportunity to list preferred tables according to topic or host.
In addition, a raffle will be held to raise funds for "Wheels For Life". Buy your raffle tickets here!
Part 3: After Party In true gala fashion, after the formal dinner, we would like to invite our guests to join us for informal celebration over drinks and dancing at Slow Boat Brewery in Sanlitun! The top floor will be reserved for us, with drink specials going all night and a live band.
All the proceeds of this evening will be donated towards the United Foundation for China’s Health “Wheels for Life” program in order to deliver healthcare services to migrant women across the Greater Beijing area.
This event is open to all with a black tie formal dress code. (Does not need to be floor length gowns. Cocktail attire with professional focus is appropriate.)
