Breaking Into Sustainability:
Women’s Empowerment Through Travel (Event #60)
Our panel brings together some of the greatest voices in China on sustainability to showcase how to launch a career in this growing field. Targeted towards women interested in making the move abroad, or working towards more sustainable practices in their own backyard, our expert panel will tell you how they broke into the field and best practices for a fulfilling career.
Join us for a conversation around career development, sustainability, and travel in China in 2021 and the future.
