Dr Mimi Zou named in the ‘Young Women to Watch in International Affairs’ award

Congratulations to Dr Mimi Zou, Fangda Partners Career Development Fellow in Chinese Commercial Law at St Hugh’s, who has been announced as one of the finalists for this year’s list of ‘Young Women to Watch in International Affairs’.

The aim of the list is to shine a spotlight on young Australian women making a name for themselves in government, academia, think-tanks, the private sector and civil society across the broad horizon of international affairs – whether it be in foreign policy, national security, international aid and development, a particular bi-lateral relationship, cyber, defence, strategic issues or international trade.

Dr Zou is a qualified lawyer in England and Wales and New South Wales, Australia, and has worked in academia, international organisations, government departments, global law firms and financial institutions in Asia, Europe and North American for over 15 years. In 2016, the Asia Society named Dr Zou as an ‘Asia 21 Young Leader’, which recognises the accomplishments of rising change-makers in the region. She was a finalist in the Young Australian of the Year Awards, the UK Asian Women of Achievement Awards, and the inaugural 40 Under 40 Most Influential Asian-Australian Awards.
