Event details

The British Chamber Shanghai and AmCham Shanghai are delighted to invite our female community to the annual International Women’s Day Breakfast on Friday, 5 March 2021.

Stress and anxiety are part of daily life and can often become an obstacle to our professional development and weigh on our mental health. Join us to hear from China’s first ‘brain coach’, Elise Zhu, to understand how the female brain processes emotions and learn how to overcome stress and anxiety in the workplace and beyond.

In Elise’s session, our organisational psychologist will provide an insightful presentation on ‘Women’s Brain and Resilience’:

  • How are women’s brain wired differently than men’s and how that renders women more emotionally vulnerable?
  • How to rewire our brain to be more resilient?
  • How to trigger our ‘resilience hormone’ to be more resilient?

Following Elise’s presentation, our distinguished panellists will share with us their views, drawing from their professional and personal experiences, on how they have coped with the mental impact the past year’s has had on their life and how they have risen to the challenges.

We look forward to celebrating International Women’s Day by uniting to overcome our collective challenges.
