New York, NY (PRWEB) September 05, 2012
As the headline event of YUE National Luxury Week™, YUE Power 100™ Award Gala Dinner will bring together preeminent Chinese and American leaders to salute the honorees’ contributions on the cross-cultural understanding between China and United States.
“As a publication that speaks with Chinese sensitivity and international outlook, YUE is not here to celebrate the Chinese ethnicity or identity per se. Rather, YUE Power 100™ Award recipients embody, through their professional calling and community services, a triumph over any singular culture and the beauty of negotiating among multiple identities. Our winners are not only powerful, but also empowering. They are the agents for positive changes,” said Chiu-Ti Jansen, Publisher of YUE magazine, “I am convinced that the impact of the Chinese will become more visible as more and more of them are taking a leadership role in our societies and global scene.”
Winners of the YUE Power 100™ are accomplished Chinese or Chinese American leaders who have succeeded in their fields in both China and in United States, and have demonstrated pride in their Chinese heritage. They have enhanced Chinese-American cultural interactions and have broken barriers for Chinese or Chinese Americans in their fields. They also have contributed to the wellbeing of the communities in China, United States and around the world.
YUE will announce the 2012 Power 100™ winners in its upcoming Fall 2012 issue and through major national and international media.
