CMI Hong Kong supports The Women’s Foundation gala dinner as Silver Sponsor
In today’s workplace, gender equality and inclusiveness is a mission that cannot be ignored. Yet there is still significant work to be done in many areas. The Women’s Foundation in Hong Kong is a non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting gender equality, empowering underprivileged women and nurturing female leaders through research, community work, education and advocacy.
On 4th November, The Women’s Foundation held a gala dinner with the theme of ‘The Power of Togetherness’ to raise funds for their meaningful work. CMI Hong Kong was present as a Silver Sponsor, and was represented by seven CMI members including Dr Paulina Chan, Mr Derek Choi, Mr Justin Leung, Ms Gigi Mak, Dr Alan Miller, Ms Veronica Ng and Mr Michael Wong. The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Hong Kong Section was also a co-sponsor of the event.
CMI Hong Kong is thrilled to be a corporate supporter of the Foundation’s work and objectives. We believe in building and sustaining an equal and inclusive work environment for women; in challenging stereotypes, inequality and injustice against women; and that we should continue to encourage more women to take up management and leadership positions in various industries and sectors.
Over a million Hong Kong dollars was raised by the end of the gala dinner, demonstrating the high level of generosity and support from the stakeholders, donors and guests from around Hong Kong.
CMI Hong Kong will continue our commitment to the promotion and pursuit of equality and inclusiveness in collaboration with the Foundation, as well as different partners.
