We had an uplifting evening at our Gala last Thursday under the theme “The Power of Togetherness”, raising critical funds to continue our work. We were touched by the enthusiastic support from almost 500 guests, friends, allies and partners.
We are immensely grateful to our Title Sponsor Bloomberg as well as Associate Sponsors Citi and Meta (formerly known as Facebook) for their tremendous dedication to TWF. This Gala would not have been possible without their generous support.
We had a timely discussion with a diverse panel of impressive leaders: Dr Trisha Leahy | Hong Kong Sports Institute; Dr Brenda Alegre | University of Hong Kong, and Megan Lam | Neurum Health about community, connection and gender equality. Thank you, Adrian Warr | Edelman for moderating. We welcome you to watch the full recording.
We were touched to hear the heartfelt sharing by our Programme participants—Antonia Kwan | #TEENForGood, Deepa Jivan | Mentoring Programme for Women’s Leaders, Frosti Lau | Male Allies, Ki Ki Leung and Apple Lo | Girls Go Tech Programme.
Thank you to our amazing emcee Ben Quinlan and pledge leaders, Angelina Kwan and Mary McHale.
