Enterprise Educators UK (EEUK) have awarded The Women’s Organisation’s partner, Jing Zhang, with its first ever international fellowship.
This year saw EEUK award its first international fellowship to Jing Zhan from Beijing Weishengchang International (BWI) for working with Enterprise Evolution, consultancy arm of Liverpool-based charity, The Women’s Organisation.
Jing was awarded a fellowship alongside her colleague Alison Price, principal consultant and co-founder of Enterprise Evolution at EEUK’s annual conference Gala Dinner this year held in Oxford.
Following its inaugural ceremony last year, the national fellowship is designed to recognise the personal professional achievements of the individuals at the centre of enterprise education and rewards their pioneering work.
Based on the IOEE National Occupational Standard for enterprise and entrepreneurship educators, the award offers the only sector-wide recognition that is equally available to all those working as enterprise educators, including academics, practitioners and influencers.
To become a Fellow of EEUK, individuals are required to demonstrate their professional practice through a written portfolio comprising of four written pieces reflecting on their professional practice.
Jing Zhang and Alison Price now join their Enterprise Evolution colleague, Lisa McMullan, in receiving the accolade for their consultancy services delivered throughout the UK and internationally in China.
“I am excited to get the fellowship of EEUK, which recognises my professional achievement in enterprise education against an international benchmark; achieving this Fellowship is so important for me,” said Jing.
Lisa McMullan, director for development and consultancy at The Women’s Organisation and Enterprise Evolution, said: “The EEUK Fellowship is a valuable accolade in the enterprise education sector, offering the only sector-wide recognition of its kind and ensuring that the contributions of enterprise educators to teaching and research are widely celebrated.”
