About the Conference:
The goal of Alibaba’s inaugural Global Conference on Women and Entrepreneurship is to jump-start a conversation among women in China on empowerment and personal fulfillment as entrepreneurs, as leaders, as policy-makers, and as role models for future generations. A distinguished roster of international speakers, including several Alibaba executives, will discuss ideas and initiatives to inspire women in China, and around the world, to pursue their dreams and design their own futures.
Speakers will include female executives, academics, entrepreneurs and thought leaders from across industries and around the world. They will address over 500 hundred women leaders and executives from the fields of politics, business, finance, technology, fashion and media – women who are driving the conversation at their respective organizations, as the influencers of current and future generations of women across China.
