Ten government departments created the program in January 2010 that promotes development of women working in scientific research, public affairs and other circles. Chen Zhili said in her speech at the meeting that the program should do more to encourage women's participation in political discussions and advocate gender equity. It should also promote policies that help female employees develop their talents and encourage them to be more self-reliant and self-confident.
