Happy International Women’s Day

Collage - BPWHK Speaks with {You} Campaign (IWD2020)

We are proud to have the opportunity today to celebrate all the amazing women and men in the past century that have stood up and devoted themselves to the fight for women’s rights and world peace. This torch has now been passed on to our generation.

As individuals, we are each responsible for our own thoughts and actions every day. We can actively choose to challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and celebrate women’s achievements. What we do can have an impact on our larger society and pave the way to create a gender equal world, and more. This is exactly what the theme for International Women’s Day 2020 this year is about – #EachForEqual.

We launched BPWHK Speaks with {You} and selected 12 amazing members to hear about their story, their career defining moments and how they are being #EachforEqual in Hong Kong. Read their Q&A, reflect and join the movement with us! The stories are available here (BPWHK Speaks with {You} Campaign (IWD2020) ) and at our LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/64630078/ We will feature their stories on Facebook page in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
