近日Forbes & Inc 对CNEW创始人Elaine Zhou女士进行采访。以下是采访内容:

Based in Beijing and Singapore, Elaine Zhou is a leadership development coach, inspirational speaker and serial entrepreneur. Her book 'You Can Create Your Life' has an emphasis on conscious goal-setting, self-help, and spiritual devotion. She a champion of the 'Doing Business In China Program' by conducting numerous workshops for business leaders and entreprenuers who intend to venture into China and speak at various conferences about the topic. As Co-Founder of CNEW Women Equipping Centre, she is passionate about the role of women in business and has been regularly featured on FOX, ABC, CBS and NBC talking about female entrepreneurship and raising the awareness of the challenges female working professional face in the workplace. I asked Elaine if she believes there are any differences working as a woman in China by comparison to the West?


Elaine: China’s economic growth creates greater opportunities for women. but with endless opportunities, only some women can access them.


Although there are more female working professionals are taking leadership roles in the companies.  But culture values tend to keep women from becoming too successful in the workplace, people in China accept that women can “hold up half of the sky”, but when they go back home, they are still often asked by family and relatives about when they are going to stop working and find a man to settle down, or they should be focusing on family and kids. The role of women in China, women assumed a relatively subordinate position to men. Thus female working professionals are facing tremendous pressure from gender equality, increased competition, marriage and family, the transition from old family system to modern system in China; social security for working women in the urban cities and safeguarding the legitimate rights and interests.


China is a developing country with the largest population in the world. Of its total population of 1.3 billion, women are 48.6% of China population. Therefore, the promotion of gender equality and the overall development of women is not only of great significance for China's development, it also has a special influence on the efforts for the advancement of mankind and the whole world.


The one purpose for China Women Equipping Center’s mission is in the promotion of gender equality and women’s development which aligns with China big policies.


We encourage women to participate in decision making and management or start business. As employment is the foundation that working women rely on for subsistence and independence, to gain confidence and voice both family and workplace. As well as to build a support system for women professionals to support one another, actively seeking for higher education and continuous self-development to advance themselves with relevant skills to be able to stay relevant at 21st century economy and social trend.
