Last chance to sign up for the remaining three Shared Value Immersion Visits in this round of capacity building activities. These informative and engaging half-day site visits/sessions are commissioned by SIE Fund and co-organised by various community partners to provide an understanding of the multifaceted aspects of six topical issues in Hong Kong (see below for more details). Participants will engage in an interactive "idea-jamming" session that brainstorms for ideas and next steps that businesses can take to seize the opportunity to do and accomplish more.

All visits include:

  • A brief introduction to Shared Value
  • A visit or sharing session by the NGO/ SE partner, providing key insights on local issues and showing examples of existing solutions
  • An Idea Jamming session with other participants

EMPOWERING LOW-INCOME FAMILIES
While Hong Kong made international headlines for becoming the world’s capital of billionaires, 1.35 million of its 7.35 million residents were living below the poverty line. Unveiling the major factors of poverty and challenges faced by low-income families, this visit will showcase social innovations around the issue and brainstorm together on how to create better access to healthcare, education and reliable employment through Shared Value.

EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES AND DIVERSITY IN THE WORKPLACE
What does equality and inclusiveness look like in workplace? Why does it matter to both employers and employees?
