Upon the 5th anniversary of Gemstone W Circle, we would love to invite you to join Gemstone Club and celebrate your amazing Gemstone journey with us and others. We are all like gemstones starting life as a very normal rock. When discovered, polished and shined, this rock becomes not only strikingly beautiful inside and out, it is valuable, precious and in high demand. We see the power of leadership in the process. We witness how it has grown within every one of us, and how it has gone beyond and created lasting impact on others. The journey and growth are worth celebrating and the experience is worth sharing.

EMPOWERING OTHERS VIA INWARD EXPLORATION
The Launch of Gemstone Club
Here we proudly announce the initiative of Gemstone Club, a global network of Gemstone W Circle alumni of mentors and mentees to stay connected and continuous learning. We would love to invite you to join the launch of Gemstone Club through a hybrid mode (offline plus online event). Beyond simply a connect event, we have invited a special guest, Mai Stanek, an emotional empowerment coach to enable us to empower others through inward understanding. Connect and Learn is the all about Gemstone Club.

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Mai Stanek | Emotional Empowerment Coach
THE COURAGE IN VULNERABILITY AND EMPATHIC LISTENING
"Vulnerability, as a resource in leadership and within the workplace, can impact the entire culture and increase output. It can create a place for courage and is a strength that should be harnessed. Vulnerability and leadership go hand in hand."
Connection and belonging are arguably the greatest needs humans have. Through the work from shame and connection researcher Brené Brown, the world learned that vulnerability is what is essential in order to feel these and other deeply profound and satisfying human feelings. The thought of being vulnerable, however, can summon up such uncomfortable feelings that most people avoid it.
What if we think of vulnerability as a muscle that simply needs to be exercised?
Please join us in this safe, inclusive and experiential workshop where we will practice the art of vulnerability, the crucial ingredient needed to gain intimacy and trust.

SYB X VILLAGE 127
SYB and Village 127 empower underprivileged youth in China through free training in French bakery and employment opportunities.
Village 127 is launching a special catering service with Shanghai Young Bakers (SYB). Under the technical guidance of SYB, all the products in this service will be baked by SYB graduates working at Village 127 using fine, imported ingredients and professional French bakery techniques. Proceeds from this catering service will directly support SYB for its charity programme.
Shanghai Young Bakers (SYB) is a charity program providing free training in French bakery to marginalised Chinese youth aged 17 to 23, enabling them to find qualified jobs and lead independent lives after graduation. SYB empowers disadvantaged young adults who had to drop out of school because of their family situation (parents’ death, sickness, disability or imprisonment) and are excluded from stable employment.
