Established in 1985, Global Interactions facilitates partnerships and exchange between professionals in the United States, China and other countries by organising and co-hosting international conferences, seminars and exchange visits.Past conferences in China have addressed topics relating to education, health, disability, environmental protection and natural resource management. In 1990, Global Interactions organised a US-China Women’s Conference, and in recent years this has become a bi-annual event, co-hosted with the Women’s Federation in Shanghai and Beijing.
Also in 2004 Global Interactions arranged conferences on Community Colleges (with the American Association of Community Colleges) and on education for children with special needs (with the US council for Exceptional Children). Both events were co-hosted in China by the China Association for Science and Technology.Global Interactions are also focused on providing education and leadership skills for Chinese women through courses at Sias International University and the World Academy for the Future of Women, which was established within the Sias campus in 2009.The purpose of the World Academy for the Future of Women is to advance and accelerate women’s leadership worldwide. It is the mission of the Academy to empower women through the discovery of their passion, purpose and path to success, calling forth the full expression of human possibilities through collaborative and inclusive partnerships.
