Chinese women delegates
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton met with participants in the Yale-Chinese Women’s Leadership Development Program at a dinner hosted by Ambassador-at-Large for Global Women’s Issues Melanne Verveer and Coca-Cola CEO Muhtar Kent. The 28 Chinese women delegates, who hold high-ranking positions in China’s national and provincial governments, spent three days in Washington, D.C., before traveling to Yale for a week of seminars with Yale faculty.
Yale-Chinese Women’s Leadership Development Program is a two-week program that brings to Yale approximately thirty influential and prominent Chinese women leaders from the central and provincial governments, state-owned enterprises, and civil society organizations. The program was launched in 2010 and is organized in cooperation with the All-China Women’s Federation. The program also includes two days spent in New York. It is supported through the generosity of Brad Huang ‘90 M.B.A. and The Coca-Cola Company.
