On Tuesday, 8 March 2022 – International Women’s Day – Dulwich College Shanghai Puxi successfully hosted an officially registered International Women’s Day event titled Perspectives on Systems, Culture and Equality in the 21st Century.
The event was hosted at Middle House and saw a range of excellent speakers share their thoughts and opinions on how organisational systems and cultures impact on the challenges facing women’s equality in the 21st century.
The discussions kicked off with a stirring keynote by our very own Christine Haslett, Deputy Head of College and Head of Primary, which set the tone perfectly for the evening.
It was wonderful so see many members of the Shanghai Community come out to share our support of International Women’s Day and engage proactively with the speakers. The atmosphere was electric, and the broad cross-section of community members in attendance is testament to the support that exists to challenge the status quo and continue the conversation about breaking down bias in society.
We are proud to announce that through the funds raised on the evening, Educating Girls in Rural China will be able to fully fund an additional high school education for an underprivileged girl.
A special thank you to our guest speakers, panelists and all attendees for their support.
