"I hope that the Lab can further optimize assessment and promotion mechanisms to create a fertility-friendly workplace for female scientific workers during pregnancy and lactation."
"I can answer this question right away. It is 'OK'."
Today, Zhejiang Lab held a meeting to commemorate the International Women's Day. The above dialogue took place at the meeting. The Lab's President ZHU Shiqiang gave a strong yes to the suggestions put forward by the female delegates.
At the meeting, one League member presented flowers to LI Yuehua, who was awarded the title of "National Women Making Achievements Pacesetter". YANG Qing, Director of the Research Center for Humanoid Sensing; LI Yuehua, a research specialist of Beijing Research Institute; SUN Shaoyang, winner of the first "Most Beautiful Youth of ZJ Lab" Award and Director of the Center for Science and Technology Strategy of the Department of General Administration; and XU Wentao, Director of the Trade Union Committee for Female Employees, delivered speeches at the meeting.
"We women are indeed a little less physically strong than our fellow men, but we also have one big advantage, that is, we are able to keep going in the face of failure or hardship. I hope you not afraid of failure and difficulties in life. If you hang on, you are sure to have a bright future." "When I was a child, I used to lie on a haystack to see the sky and make a wish that it would be nice to visit a big city. Today I am living in the "Fangzhong Zhihai" talents apartment of ZJ Lab. I am very happy and grateful for the career I love and the opportunity to contribute to my country." "Women cluster in administration. Relying on their professionalism, service awareness and strong will, they show their glamor at work to fully serve scientific research and shine their light." "I will continue to promote the improvement, crafting and sublimation of the work of the Trade Union Committee for Female Employees. I hope that with the strong support of the Lab's Trade Union, more female employees will be brave enough not to be afraid of time passing, build themselves up and keep shining their role at ZJ Lab." "I hope that women in managerial positions will have more opportunities to broaden their horizons and professionalize their business." They bare their heart, encourage each other, and offer advice.
ZHU Shiqiang, President of ZJ Lab, pointed out at the meeting that since ZJ Lab was established five years ago, numerous outstanding women have been involved in both scientific research and management services. They are brave, confident, tenacious and hard-working, holding up "half the sky" for the Lab's progress in various areas. ZHU Shiqiang emphasized that we should ideologically attach great importance to the power of women as a strategic sci-tech force and strive to enable female science workers to play a bigger role in scientific research and technological innovation. It is necessary to think systematically about women's opinions and suggestions, make systematic policies and measures to support the development of female science workers, continuously create a more open, inclusive and warm workplace and establish a more human-centric mechanism to give more care to our female employees and solve their worries. ZHU Shiqiang encouraged all female employees to bear in mind the country's interests at work, dare to break down barriers and delight in challenges, strive to achieve extraordinary results in ordinary work, take the lead in promoting positive energy, showing truth, kindness and beauty and building new healthy trends in life, and support the "big family" of harmony with their happy "small families".
CHEN Wei, Assistant President of ZJ Lab, presided over the meeting. Vice President ZHAO Xinlong, Assistant President LI Biqing, heads of relevant functional departments, as well as representatives of female employees from research institutes (research centers) and functional departments attended the meeting.
