Mission, Vision and History

Viva was founded in 2008 to fill a gap that existed in Beijing’s business community – a platform dedicated to bringing together professional women and allowing for the sharing of ideas and opportunities as well as challenges and vulnerability.

Another important gap was the need to create a space that allowed women to connect and build a professional network as diverse as the business community in Beijing.

Based on the above, Viva’s mission was crafted around three pillars: to connect, to learn and to inspire.  Twelve years on, the reason that Viva continues to thrive is because it has kept at its core these three pillars that today hold as strongly as they did at that first event in 2008.

Characteristic of Beijing, over time the expat members have come and gone, but their commitment to the association has remained strong.   As a result, Viva has created a truly unique global footprint.
