DE&I policies have been increasing in importance for companies in Asia. However, until recently most Asian companies and Asian branches of MNCs headquartered in North America and Europe have focused their DE&I policies and events almost exclusively on women and LGBTQ+ individuals in order to avoid the complexities and sensitivities of a discussion about incorporating other underrepresented groups into the workplace.
How can DE&I policies in Asia move beyond current trends to cover other underrepresented groups? Should companies in Hong Kong redouble their efforts to hire ethnic minorities, persons with disabilities, and persons from other forgotten minorities? What can companies do to ensure that persons from underrepresented groups in Hong Kong have the skills and experience necessary to be equal participants in the workplace?
Our panel of DE&I experts will discuss this relatively under-explored topic to move the conversation about DE&I forward in Hong Kong.
- The panel discussion will be followed by a networking session
- Guests may bring one complimentary guest to the event upon purchase of a general admission ticket (please share the guest's details via the registration form).
- No discount applies if attendees are joining without a +1 guest
