The number and percentage of women in the field of science and technology,particularly those at senior levels, are crucial indicators of the overall status of Chinese women.In order to (1) understand the development of women at senior levels in science and technology, (2) examine the policies that promote the development of women in this field and (3) foster an optimal enabling environment, the All—China Women's Federation (ACWF) initiated the project on the "Growth of Senior Women Personnel and Related Policy Recommendations" and conductedresearches on women in science and technology in five provinces (including Beijing) at the end of 2009 and the beginning of 2010. 
The Project held 15 symposiums in the five locations: Beijing, Jilin, Henan,Shaanxi and Anhui.Participants included over 200 women personnel at senior levels, experts, research administrators, leadership from provincial governments and related departments.These were the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Tsinghua University, Beijing Aeronautics University, University of Science and Technology of China, Xi'an Jiaotong University, Zhengzhou Uruversity, China Electronics Engineering Design Institute, Beijing General Research Institute of Mining & Metallurgy, Jilin Research Institute of Urban Planning and Design, Shaanxi Research Design Institute of Petroleum and Chemical Industry, and First Automobile Works.During the symposiums, the project conducted interviews focusing on issues including achievements of women in science and technology, their development, major obstacles they still face, their demands of and recommendations for government policies.
