Women in Leadership Program                               
December, Shanghai (Chinese/Partly English with Chinese interpretation)
Rapid economic development over the past three decades has established a huge stage for Chinese women to demonstrate their great potentials. Although many have shown a flare, only a few have become leading actresses on this economic stage. According to statistics, female executives account for around 20% of the management in a company. In the newly-announced Forbes List of 400 Richest Persons in China, females only account for 7%, and included in Forbes 100 Most Powerful Women in the World are only three Chinese women.
