TWF Gala Dinner – Thank You for Your Support!

We had an inspiring evening at our Gala last Thursday under the theme “From Here We Lead”, raising critical funds to continue our work. We were touched by the enthusiastic support from our guests, friends, allies and partners, in-person at the JW Marriott.

We are tremendously grateful to our Title Sponsor Bloomberg as well as Associate Sponsors Jardines and Meta for their dedication to TWF. This Gala would not have been possible without their generous support.

We had two powerful discussions on our theme with five insightful speakers: Ivy Au-Yeung | OCBC Wing Hang Bank and Caroline Sin | Kwun Tong Maryknoll College, on leadership; and Sophia Hotung | writer and illustrator, Professor Vivian Lou | University of Hong Kong and Joshua Wang | Goldman Sachs, on allyship. Thank you, Chinali Patel | British Consulate-General Hong Kong for moderating both discussions.

We were touched by the incredible sharing by our Girls Go Tech Programme participants— Selene Chan and Vincy Ng | Holy Trinity College.

Thank you to our fantastic emcee and pledge co-lead, Ben Quinlan, and pledge co-lead, Mary McHale.
