Invitation | Australian Alumni Event

Panel Discussion: Can women do it all? 

Balancing careers with life’s other commitments


This panel discussion is an opportunity for female leaders to provide concrete examples to mid career professionals about how to pursue a successful career and manage the other responsibilities of life. Women globally spend disproportionately more time on unpaid work than men.  This is time spent cooking, cleaning, washing clothes, caring for children, the ill and the elderly.  Women also bear heavy expectations to manage family relationships, including with in-laws, and children’s education. For working women, this creates the  ‘double burden’ of work at home and in the office. Life responsibilities are, and should be, the enjoyable things too! Successful women need time to recharge and relax outside of the workplace.


All professional Australian alumni women are welcome to join us for this wonderful event; however, numbers are limited, so please register your interest quickly!

The Australian Consulate General in Guangzhou invites you to a dynamic panel discussion that will help ambitious women navigate balancing their career ambitions with other equally important life commitments on Thursday, 16th February 2017.



Please note that the event will be in Chinese.   

Hosted by the Australian Consulate General in Guangzhou, the panel will include: 



  • Ms Sun Donghui

Director General Manager of North South Import and Export Trading Co.

深圳南北进出口贸易公司董事总经理  孙东辉女士


  • Ms Frances Wen

Country Manager for Pharmacare Laboratories



  • Ms Kara Cheung

Managing Partner for KCW & Associates



With so many talented and successful women in Guangzhou, we didn’t have room to put them all on the panel! Luckily, many female leaders from a range of industries have agreed to contribute as audience members.
