ACAA Mentor Program 2018
Mentee Applications Open 1st May

The ACAA Mentor Program 2018 started in early April and the mentor applications will close tomorrow. The ACAA team is currently reviewing all of the mentor applications across a variety of industry and experience.

The mentee applications will open at the beginning of May.

The ACAA Mentor Program is an unique opportunity for both mentor and mentee.

As a mentor, there are a number of benefits of engaging with the Mentor Program. It is not training nor a social activity, it is a unique opportunity that gives the mentee a chance to step out of their day-to-day activities to plan for the future and strategize how their career goals can be achieved.

As a mentee, the ACAA Mentor Program is a way to gain knowledge and skills and boost your professional & personal development through the sharing of information and experience with a senior industry professional.

Happy Hour Drinks Guangzhou

20th April 2018

Last Friday, we hosted our monthly Happy Hour Drinks at Morton's, bringing together the Australia-China business community over a Friday beer. With an extended happy hour, a live band, and great prizes, we were delighted to see familiar and new faces gathering together for our signature after-work mixer. It was also our great pleasure to have the GDTV World Channel team join us, reporting on networking events and their influence on the Australian expat community and business referrals in general. Don't forget to join ACAA, AustCham, ACYPI, and ACYA and Australia-China network in Guangzhou next time if you missed out.

Addressing the UN Women China Workshop in Beijing recently, University of South Australia School of Commerce researcher, Dr Xin Deng, spoke about how businesses in China can significantly benefit from greater gender equality initiatives.

“China-specific information on gender equality in the business world is limited, and until recently, it was believed that gender initiatives in China might work differently,” Dr Deng says.
