«MY VISION IS TO GIVE WOMEN THE SKILLS, INSPIRATION AND SUPPORTIVE COMMUNITY NEEDED TO PURSUE THEIR BUSINESS GOALS.»
Meet Rachel Barac, Founder of Boss Lady Shanghai, a movement and platform that is meant to inspire women to reach their full potential. Originally from Australia, Barac has been living as an expat for the last five years. “When my husband and I moved to Shanghai I wasn’t sure what to expect. I quickly found, however, that there was an entrepreneurial energy here that I hadn’t experienced anywhere else and I wanted to be a part of it.” She came up with the concept of BOSS LADY while working for a successful entrepreneur here. “I met lots of other entrepreneurs. I heard their stories and learned more about what they did. I met so many creative, inspiring and innovative women. The idea for BOSS LADY grew from a desire to create a fun and relaxed way for these kindred spirits to connect, share ideas and support each other, with the aim of helping women to improve their business and lives. I have found Shanghai to be a great place for entrepreneurs. There’s a strong start-up culture here with a lot of women leading the way. However, there are still many barriers for female entrepreneurs to overcome. BOSS LADY is about empowering and encouraging female entrepreneurs through knowledge, inspiration and business networks.”My vision is for the BOSS LADY community to maintain its positivity and supportiveness while expanding and cultivating a real community of empowerment. What does success represent to you? Success is being comfortable with who you are and happy with what you are doing in life. For me to feel successful I need to be doing something I find meaningful and I need to know that I am contributing in a positive way to people’s lives .
与Boss Lady Shanghai的创始人Rachel Barac会面，这是一个旨在激发女性充分发挥潜力的运动和平台。 Barac最初来自澳大利亚，过去五年一直是外籍人士。 “当我和我丈夫搬到上海时，我不确定会发生什么。然而，我很快发现，这里有一种创业精神，我在其他任何地方都没有经历，我想成为其中的一员。“她在为这里一位成功的企业家工作时提出了BOSS LADY的概念。 “我遇到了很多其他企业家。我听到了他们的故事并且更多地了解了他们做了什么。我遇到了很多有创意，鼓舞人心和创新的女性。 BOSS LADY的想法源于为这些志趣相投的人创造一种有趣和轻松的方式，以便相互联系，分享想法和相互支持，旨在帮助女性改善自己的事业和生活。我发现上海是一个适合企业家的好地方。这里有一个强大的创业文化，很多女性一路领先。但是，女性企业家仍有很多障碍需要克服。 BOSS LADY旨在通过知识，灵感和商业网络赋予女性企业家权力。“我的愿景是让BOSS LADY社区在扩展和培养真正的赋权社区的同时保持其积极性和支持性。
