China’s Mulan Society, the local chapter of the Women & Allies Employee Resource Group (ERG), recently received an award from the Shanghai City Trade Union as “The Most Respected Women’s Network” of the city. Currently, AIG is the only foreign insurance company to receive this award by the city government.
China’s Mulan Society was established in 2015 and currently has more than 600 members, including over 200 who are based in Shanghai. The ERG was able to demonstrate their achievements through a 2015 wrap-up report which showcased how the company has been dedicating to fostering female talent by encouraging them to develop their career and grow within a corporate environment.
Eric Zheng, President and CEO of AIG China, who attended a celebration event of the Mulan Society on International Women’s Day, stated: “It’s a privilege to work with those extraordinary female colleagues; through the organization, you’ll learn how to cope with challenges, and grow into a successful and confident female leadership. We expect to see more contributions from the group.”
