Beijing Efforts to Promote Citizenship
Our Beijing office put together a small team to organize and structure our Citizenship efforts for 2015 and beyond. After the series of meetings, a team of between two to ten people was put together who will be dedicated to setting up events and activities for each of the different Citizenship sectors. Each team has a team leader who will be responsible for holding at least one meeting a month to organize events. Additionally, the team leaders of each team will meet once a month with the Citizenship partner to discuss upcoming activities.
As part of our efforts, the diversity team has already held two small events: one in support of Lunar New Year and one in support of International Women's Day. The Lunar New Year Event was a short history lesson on different items that are a necessity during the new year. Particularly, different items were shown to our colleagues and our colleagues were tasked with trying to figure out the reasoning and/or story for such item. The International Women's Day event included a short seminar from a local dentist to discuss the best methods for healthy and white teeth.
