"Through Enterprise Evolution, we have developed significant international partnerships and reach and we are delighted that this has been honoured by EEUK."
This year saw EEUK award their first international fellowship to Jing Zhang (FEEUK) 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 & Co-Founder of Enterprise Evolution, last night (05/09/2019) 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 & Entrepreneurship educators, this pioneering 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 this prestigious accolade for their consultancy services delivered throughout the U.K and internationally in China.
Jing said: “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”.
EEUK Chair (2019-20) Gareth Trainer (University of Newcastle) said Jing’s submission demonstrated that she is a very competent and accomplished influencer, working as a national Champion of Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Education across China.
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.”
“I am delighted that Jing and Alison have been formally recognised for their extensive and valuable work in championing enterprise and entrepreneurship across China. Through Enterprise Evolution, we have developed significant international partnerships and reach and we are delighted that this has been honoured by EEUK."
