What were Diane’s thoughts on the recognition?
“I am honored to be recognized by CEO Today Magazine as a winner of the 2022 Business Women of the Year Award. This is a meaningful recognition to my team’s continuous efforts in empowering MSMEs and women entrepreneurs in the digital world era,” said Diane Wang.
“I am passionate about what we are doing now and will spare no efforts to equip more women with digital tools and help them reach success in the business world,” Diane said.
What is Diane’s industry expertise?
Diane Wang has leveraged over 30 years of business expertise to drive DHgate’s mission to empower people through digitalization. In her eyes, digital tools provide a perfect solution for addressing gender inequality. For example, MyyShop, DHgate’s one-stop social commerce SaaS platform launched in 2020, aims to lower the entry barriers for women entrepreneurs to start their own online stores as direct sellers and turn their impact into a good business.
Diane Wang’s unchanged belief is in women helping women. Being one of the first-generation women entrepreneurs in China, she is committed to engaging with global organizations.
Organizations like the APEC Business Advisory Council (ABAC), the Business 20 (B20), the official G20 dialogue forum with the global business community, the BRICS Women’s Business Alliance (WBA), and associated working groups that uphold women’s economic participation, promote gender equality and inclusion, and for many more for years into the future.
