Joining Dipont was quite a change for you and your career, wasn’t it?
Yes, for many years I had held various teaching and management positions in a school in Chengdu, where I’m from, before moving to Shanghai to join Dipont in 2017. My role with the company includes managing a number of our international curriculum centers, based in high schools across China, and ensuring our international programs develop and grow. The change in focus and the different skills needed has been a big transition for me, but I have felt supported by Dipont to take on these new responsibilities. I also travel around the country a lot more than I did before, so that’s also a significant difference. Dipont has allowed me to take my career in a very different direction to the one I had perhaps envisaged for myself previously.
What attracted you to join Dipont specifically?
I had worked with Dipont employees in my previous role and I met them before I really came across the company itself. I was impressed by their strong sense of responsibility to the cause of education and the passion they had for their work. Their attitude made me feel confident that Dipont was a strong, cooperative and sustainable company, where I could change the trajectory of my life. It’s been a big change for me, but one that I’m glad I’ve made.
