International Women’s Day: Celebrating the Women of WildChina

WildChina > WildChina > International Women’s Day: Celebrating the Women of WildChina

It’s not often you come across a pioneering travel company founded by a woman. What if you then add in completely equal pay across genders and 70% of leadership roles held by women? Well, we think a pretty inclusive and empowering workplace.

Founded in 2000 by Yunnan-born Mei Zhang, WildChina forges a gender-equal work environment every day, celebrating the achievements of our female staff through recognition, promotion, and respect.

This International Women’s Day, we’d like to recognize the dedication, hard work, and absolute brilliance of the women we work with. Our all-female Travel Designer team, who work day and night to create breathtaking journeys for our clients. Our education team women, who create trips, plan trips, and run trips. Our corporate ladies in Bejiing and Shanghai. Our all-female Outbound team, all-female Operations team, and all-female Finance team. Our wonderful Ayis and Admin women. Our female experts. Our Marketing ladies and our Business Development women. Our female guides and local partners.

Throughout every part of our company, the women of WildChina make us who we are. Their thoughtfulness and passion help thousands of guests each year to experience China differently, and we couldn’t do any of it without them.

For this, we say thank you.
