Break The Ceiling Touch the Sky® –
China Edition 2021

Global research shows conclusively that Companies that are more gender diverse deliver better sales and profits, that women “hold up half the sky”.   The 2021 Greater China Edition of Break the ceiling touch the sky®  offers Companies and individuals the opportunity to unlock the full potential of a more gender diverse workforce,  learn and exchange best practices on leadership, diversity & inclusion and success across industries, learning from past editions of the summit held in Singapore, India, North America, Europe, ANZ and the Middle East since 2015. The forum is led by C-suite leaders from China and the world’s most successful Companies and entrepreneurs who have distinguished themselves in business and combines local insights with the global  knowledge and insights on gender diversity & inclusion and broader Diversity, Inclusion of the past 7 years. The forum supports House of Rose Professional’s MISSION 2029 FOR A BETTER WORLD – the 10 year action plan to shape a better world via better diversity & inclusion, leadership and business.


This conference is designed for Senior Managers, Directors, and VPs across functions  from across China.  While content is customized for women leaders, men who support diversity & inclusion will gain extremely valuable insights into unlocking the full business potential of D&I on their business and how men can personally serve as ambassadors of positive change. Delegates include middle and senior representatives across functions, aspiring General Managers/CEOs, and entrepreneurs.  Agenda for the 2021 China Edition is being customized to meet Greater China’s unique needs.

It was a pleasure and privilege to have the opportunity to listen to so many accomplished leaders and achievers, with a common shared goal of championing the cause of Diversity and Inclusion. Their experiences and the best practices they shared -- which actually work, in our present-day and time -- with all the challenges and chaos we face today, made the content relevant and pertinent. Thank you for a great experience -- it was educational, inspiring, and motivational -- and I am a richer person because of it.

Safe travels Anthony! I found the conference to be high energy, educational and worthwhile. I go to many women focused events and this one is a “not to miss” day. The integrity and effort put forth by the Anthony Rose and the Rose professional staff is exceptional. Everyone came together to support a movement. From my interactions with volunteers to world sponsors, the end result will be a day of inspiration I will never forget. Thank you for encouraging me and our students to focus on “breaking the ceiling and touching the sky!”
