Philanthropy is a noble and glorious cause that reflects the values of humanity, love and dedication, said Meng Xiaosi, vice president and member of the Secretariat of the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF), during the fourth China-US Women's Leadership Exchange and Dialogue (Women-LEAD) in Beijing on May 3, 2012.

The event, themed 'Women and Philanthropy', was co-chaired by the ACWF and the US Office of Global Women's Issues as part of a series of efforts to boost people-to-people exchanges between the two countries.

She said that philanthropy would help to promote understanding and exchanges between all levels of society and to create solidarity and harmonious interpersonal and social relations.

Although China and the US have different national conditions, social and cultural backgrounds, women of both countries are proactive advocators, promoters and practitioners of philanthropy. She said that the two nations would share experiences with each other in developing philanthropy and women's involvement in it.

Melanne Verveer, ambassador-at-large for the US Office of Global Women's Issues, said that the US is willing to boost exchanges between women in practicing philanthropy, sharing information and experiences and promoting the development of women and philanthropy through collaborations between NGOs and the government.

Representatives from the China Women's Development Foundation, Everbright Bank, Pierre Foundation and ExxonMobil International Corporation Foundation shared their successful experiences in organizing charity activities, especially in carrying forward the humanitarian spirit, empowering women, helping the needy and safeguarding social justice.

The Women-LEAD initiative has been a significant activity in women's issues under the China-US High-Level Consultation on People-to-People Exchange since April 2011. It has been held three times alternately in the two countries, under the themes of 'Women and the Economy', 'Work and Family' and 'Women and Employment'.
