In this discussion with CUSWF, Mei will be sharing her thoughts on sustainability and the world of business. There will be time allotted for questions from the audience.
About Mei Xu
Mei Xu successfully negotiated the sale of Chesapeake Bay Candle to Newell Brands in 2017, a conglomerate with a $14 billion portfolio of consumer goods. Mei is now focused on helping women-owned consumer product companies grow and prosper with e-commerce platform, Yes She May.

We are pleased to announce the launch of the first podcast in a series of discussions about issues pertinent to Gen-Zers!
Here is what we covered in our first episode… “The #pandemic has pushed people to move towards the future of working in many aspects: remote working, virtual meetings, & online bonding, etc. Plus, now the Metaverse is being set up where the virtual versions of ourselves can do anything from working to socialising. So, what would “working” look like in the next decade?”
We have designed a mentorship program which will partner students and CUSWF summer interns with an expert in their field of choice. Whether they want to pursue a career in the arts, or perhaps they are seeking a finance role, CUSWF's mentors will be there to help guide their mentees to success.
