WEConnect International in China

  • Shenzhen Shi, Guangdong Sheng China (map)

Power by Walmart - WeConnect International in China's agenda emphasizes strategies that deliberately support women in business by placing priority on purchasing goods from women-owned businesses (Buy Intentionally); coaching women on entrepreneurial prowess (Sponsor & Mentor Intentionally); and elevating the status of women in both business and society as a whole (Promote Intentionally). These strategies are designed for women to achieve their greatest entrepreneurial potential. Research from the Global Entrepreneurship and Development Institute reveals an encouraging 98% rate of profitability among women entrepreneurs in China, and that number is still on the rise.

Join in the effort and help China’s leading women entrepreneurs succeed in shaping the future of global business. Through the testimonials of corporate leaders and women entrepreneurs and panel discussions challenging societal norms, 2016 Marketplace participants will gain new strategies for integrating women-owned businesses into corporate supply chains. This event also features an opportunity for women-owned businesses to showcase their products and services to top multinational companies.

WEConnect International in China will honor top women entrepreneurs and multinational companies that excel in supplier diversity at an awards presentation during the luncheon. The day’s program will conclude with a networking reception where women leaders, innovators and entrepreneurs can strengthen their connections with the greater business community.
