CHICAGO, IL (April 9, 2009) – Twelve women will visit China for 12 days as part of the Cross Cultural Opportunity in China initiative.

The experience is designed to provide participants the opportunity to meet residents, students and others to gain a better understanding of the Chinese culture, as well as the challenges and opportunities for involvement in this vast and growing country representing the third largest economy in the world.

Ruth Hill and Barbara Johnson, who lived in China for four years, are leading the 12-day visit.

“This kind of experience provides a perfect opportunity to learn more about the culture and the people,” Hill says, through visits to various parts of the country and conversations with residents.

A brief overview of trip highlights includes a visit to an English training school in western China where the team will provide English conversation opportunities for the students, a visit to the Evergreen project to observe the work done there, along with tours of landmarks such as the Forbidden City, the Great Wall, Tiananmen Square and other well-known venues.
