(May 1, 2023) The Center for Business Studies and Innovation in Asia-Pacific (CBSI) is excited to announce that Nora Wu, Chair of the CBSI Advisory Board, was recently honored as one of the newest members of the prestigious “Committee of 100,” a non-partisan organization of prominent Chinese American leaders in business, government, academia, and the arts. Congratulations, Nora!
The “Committee of 100” has its roots in a conversation between renowned Chinese-American architect I.M. Pei and former US Secretary of State Dr. Henry Kissinger, a discussion which led to recruiting a distinguished and influential group of Chinese Americans to address issues of international concern and, in the process, build bridges between the United States and China.
Nora’s accomplishments and contributions to the University of San Francisco are many. She is a USF alum, having graduated from the University of San Francisco with an accounting degree in 1988. In addition to chairing the CBSI Advisory Board, Nora serves as a trustee board member for the University and on the advisory board for the USF Women Leadership and Philanthropy program.
Nora has nearly 30 years of cross-industry consulting experience, having advised clients ranging from small companies to large multinational corporations in areas such as mergers and acquisitions, divestitures, corporate restructuring, capital markets, and talent strategies. Over the years, she’s had numerous leadership roles with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), including as its Global Human Capital Leader, as a member of its Asia Pacific Executive Team, as a China Lead Partner, as a senior advisor, and as a board member for PricewaterhouseCoopers International Ltd. Nora is also a strong advocate for women and passionate about giving back to the community. In 2016, she was named to the Financial Times “UPstanding Leader’s List” of 100 senior executives in the US and UK who have fought against discrimination and championed diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
Please join us in congratulating Nora for the well-deserved honor of being selected for the “Committee of 100.” We are very proud of her accomplishments and deeply appreciative of her service.
