Gabi Talk finalAbout the Topic

“It’s not about bringing more women to the table, it’s about building a bigger table.” A more diverse and inclusive society does not mean that when one part of society goes up, another part goes down. What it really means, is that we all rise together and are given the opportunity to fulfil our full potential, as individuals, as families, as organisations. Our speaker will share what the current status of women in Hong Kong is and what we can all do to advance gender equality and build a more inclusive society. If you’re interested in finding out why a supportive network is crucial to resilience, leadership and courage, this webinar is for you.
