bod 35 Su Cheng Harris SimpsonOn March 8, 2016, Executive Director of WEConnect International in China Su Cheng Harris-Simpson sat down with CCTV to discuss the state of gender parity in China’s business world. According to Su Cheng:

"Right now it's still really a men's world. There are more male executives than women, for that, we need men to support and help to mentor and sponsor more women into executive level positions. Right now I believe it's not equal. Our time and our services are not valued equally. And that shows in pay, the lower pay and contracts we get, and so forth. So I think by having us revalued at that same level would be very, very helpful.”

I really enjoy participating in WEConnect International in China’s Annual Marketplace due to its engaging format.
