Famous media personality and businesswoman Yang Lan attended the IWF (International Women's Forum) in Singapore on February 16, giving a keynote speech themed 'harmony in diversity'.

At the forum, Yang stated her own experiences of making an Olympics bid statement on behalf of China, and narrated several Chinese people-to-people exchange stories in the process of globalization.

Moreover, she shared with the audience her experience of establishing "Her Village Academy", which aimed to cultivate female leaders and promote gender equality.

She also showed some artistic works made by migrant workers' children, who were subsidized by the Sunshine Future Art Education Foundation.

"Harmony is not uniformity, but rather being oneself securely and confidently. Respecting other people's lifestyles, creating values and sharing prosperity together is what I advocate," said Yang. After the speech, she also gave an interview to Singapore Chinese TV Channel 8.
