A female C-suit leader, with Chinese origin, working on the core business in an engineering company, equipped with double French-Chinese cultures, this is the unique profile of Ms. Ling Fang, Managing Director for China and East Asia cluster at Alstom.


As an individual employee, she was one of the first Chinese in the head office when she joined Alstom 22 years ago in France; as a senior executive, she has been taking actions transforming Alstom to be a more diverse workplace in the past two decades (today 30% employees and 50% senior management are women in China).


Let’s listen to her stories and lesson learnt on witnessing and promoting diversity at Alstom in the past 22 years, and offer your support to continue her journey promoting diversity in an industrial company.
