Corinne Richeux Hua, B.E.M is a British/French national who studied Chinese at Cambridge University in the late 80’s, and has lived in Shanghai since 1993.  She left her HR position with PricewaterhouseCoopers in 2005 to pursue a new career in the newly emerging non-profit sector.

Corinne is the founder of Stepping Stones, a non-profit organization that teaches English to more than ten thousand disadvantaged children each year in Shanghai and rural China. In the 13 years since its conception, Stepping Stones has also initiated other projects, including English teacher training, digital literacy and eyecare. 

Corinne and her husband Hua Lei have two grown up children who are now studying and working in London.

Corinne will talk about the personal journey which led to her setting up a non-profit organization in Shanghai, the many interesting opportunities and unexpected challenges that she encountered once she embarked on that path, some of the fascinating things she learned in the process about non-profit work in China, and why she continues to love her work at Stepping Stones.

Congratulations to Corinne who was awarded the British Empire Medal by Prince Andrew in Shanghai:
