Join AmCham Shanghai on Friday, March 1st from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM for our 4th Annual Women's Executive Network ConferenceWeForShe: Driving Change at Hyatt on the Bund (199 Huangpu Road).

Our previous conferences have focused on the business case for greater diversity, the drivers and challenges around improving gender diversity and looking broader, beyond the numbers, at the softer side and roles everyone plays.

With the groundswell of support for women in 2018 and the wind at our backs, we need to make the most of this momentum. Seeing more women in positions of power, Hearing more female voices in leadership dialogues and Being role models for those who come behind us are what will allow us to continue to drive change. Join us as we explore how to modernize the portrayal of women in the media, how to provide more space for women to be heard and how to lead in male-centric industries to inspire others to follow.

Topics to be discussed:

HEAR HER - Supporting Female Inclusion

These days lots of companies promote D&I policies and are conscious of the optics, making sure women are seen in the top ranks. But are the women in these pictures and roles actually heard? How do those men and women who champion change ensure women don't just get a seat at the table but genuinely get included in the conversation?

BE HER - Blazing New Trails: Leading in Male-Centric Industries

As women take home more advanced degrees and begin to enter what were once regarded as traditionally male fields in ever greater numbers, who are the true trail blazers, how do they lead, and how and why are they working to bring their sisters along?
