Europeans in Hong Kong

EWMD (European Women’s Management Development Network) is celebrating its 25th Anniversary, we honour this by organising an event in Hong Kong. For details, please visit http://www.ewmd.org/events/europeans-hong-kong

Europeans in Hong Kong

Panel discussion

Hong Kong is a major international business place in Asia, however, only 5 % of the city’s population are non-Chinese, and only 0.5 % are non-Asian. It is estimated that around 31000 Europeans live and work in Hong Kong.

We would like to take a closer look at professional European women in Hong Kong. What are their stories? Where are they employed? In which fields? How many of them are entrepreneurs?

How is the European diversity reflected in Hong Kong?

Invited panellists:

Susanne Sahli, Managing Director, True Colours HR Solutions Ltd

Marita Rouhof, Senior Manager, KPMG

Dagmar Hartley, Managing Director of Asia Operations, Strottman International Inc.

Moderator: Waltraut Ritter, Research Director, Knowledge Dialogues

All are welcome, Europeans and non-Europeans! We should be glad to welcome you to our informal discussion and networking. We should be grateful if you could forward the invite to interested colleagues and contacts.

personal note:

I am an EWMD member, earlier this year Waltraut organized a fantastic trip to India, where we learned a lot about culture, working life and women’s situation in India. I am sure the Hongkong event will be a success aswell. This time I cannot attend, but I hope to be there later this summer.
