International Women’s Day has become a global event celebrating the economic, political, social and personal achievements of women. On Thursday, March 19, AmCham China Northeast Chapter invites you to our first Women's Professional Forum event of 2015. The theme of this special event is Caring for Women, with various topics focusing on encouraging fellow professional women to live a greener, healthier and more balanced life.

This month's event features two guest speakers: Dr. Steven Virant from International SOS and Dr. Zhang Zhenwu from China VITUP Healthcare Holdings, Inc. Additionally, as part of the forum, five remarkable women who have demonstrated great strength in building a better life will be sharing their personal experiences.
