On June 14, Onward Hong Kong series comes to an end with a closing panel consisting of Allan Zeman, Jasper Tsang, Harshika Patel, James Fok and Stacey Chow (moderator) and closing keynote speech by Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development Algernon Yau.
Our speakers will present their views of the opportunities and challenges to Hong Kong as it enters the next 25 years as a special administrative region of China. This Onward Hong Kong Series, which began in September 2022, had looked at this theme from different angles, from sustainability, the future generation, entrepreneurship, Hong Kong as an international financial center, to arts, culture and sports, etc.
This session will also attempt to summarize the learnings from this whole series - How do AmCham members look ahead at the road they face, and take advantage of the special characteristics of Hong Kong being an international business city sitting in China.
This session will be followed by a finale cocktail.
We are pleased to launch the year-long 20th-anniversary celebration of the establishment of its Women of Influence (WOI) Committee at the Community Hub with the Committee Co-Chairs Chelsea Perino, Marcia Ellis, and Belinda Esterhammer. The theme for this year-long celebration – “Celebrating Hong Kong Women: Past, Present & Future” – will look back at the history of the Women of Influence initiative, as well as the evolution of women and their history in Hong Kong, where we are now and plans for where we all want to go in the future.
The series of anniversary events - to be held between now and March 2024 - will include interactive workshops and sharing sessions featuring women leaders and allies, to inspire our audience of professionals from all walks of life by sharing their journeys and activating women leadership in the workplace over the last two decades. This initiative will also explore how women have contributed to the development of Hong Kong throughout its history and imagine how women can contribute to a better, more equitable and more sustainable future for Hong Kong, for themselves and for the future generations of Hong Kong women.
The series will culminate in a conference and awards gala, both of which will be held in early March 2024 in conjunction with International Women’s Day.
