WORLD REFUGEE DAY EVENTS
WEDNESDAY - 20 JUNE 2018 (TOMORROW)
On World Refugee Day, refugees are speaking. Will Hong Kong listen?
Join us tomorrow along with Community Business and our expert panelists as we tackle the big question around diversity and inclusion in the workplace, as well as refugee employment in Hong Kong: how can YOU make a difference in alleviating this plight? This event will offer a rare insight into the process recognised refugees face to seek work permits, as well as highlight some key barriers broken and positive stories.
