Glue Up’s philosophy has always been one of diversity and equality within the workplace. Therefore, we are delighted to announce that the Alibaba Group awarded Founder and COO Olivia Jingshu Ji as a ‘Top 10 Female Entrepreneur’ at the prestigious Global Conference on Women and Entrepreneurship. The award was for women that had, among other achievements, created “business miracles” whilst “balancing commercial and social value”.

Many successful and distinguished attendees were present at the event, including Jim Yong Kim, President of the World Bank Group; Lakshmi Puri, Assistant Secretary-General of the United Nations; fashion designer Vera Wang and Chinese actress Sun Li.

He stated, “it is women who encouraged me to undergo the tough times in the past 18 years since the founding of Alibaba”.</p>
<p>“Many thanks to Jack Ma and Alibaba for providing this honor, Alibaba continues to lead in empowering women globally.” Ms. Ji stated, adding, “Our Glue Up team will continue working to create a technology company that creates positive social impact for all.”</p>
