21st century Women Leadership
Personal Development Panel
Time: Saturday, August 7, 2010 Location: Beijing
In the 21st century, women’s social status is rising steadily. Women in general are talented in many areas involving high concentration, discretion, confidence and strong communication ability. Those outstanding qualities have helped women rival men while studying in schools. However, numerous exceptional educated women have encountered difficulties with career advancement. What are the causes for the disparity between advantages in colleges and that of career? Why do excellent educated women find themselves less privileged when entering the “real” competitive world? How should women pursue personal development in modern society?
In this Forum, “The Choke-point And Strategies in Women’s Career Advancement” and “The Development and Impact Higher Education Leaves for Women” are the main themes. Through communication and discussion, we will explore and find out the potential challenges for women in future career development, and seek the countering effective strategies.

College is the time when people start to inquire the true meaning for life and try to identify their own value. Bewilderment, confusion and a sense of fear for stepping into the “real world” soon are all part of this inevitable college experience. By sharing your own experience and directly interacting with domestic and international college female students, you can empower and inspire younger female generation and influence future women leaders. Furthermore, you will facilitate the enhancement of social status for women. You will contribute your power to women education and career.
