Linklaters sponsors Inclusion Recruitment Conference in Hong Kong
We were delighted to sponsor the Inclusion Recruitment Conference (IRC) in Hong Kong organized by the Queer Straight Alliance on 12 October 2017 at The Harbourview Hotel. This is the second consecutive year for Linklaters to participate along with some of our key clients, and we had the opportunity to promote our diversity initiatives and inclusive culture to prospective hires.
The conference was well attended by over 120 students from the University of Hong Kong, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Polytechnic University and City University of Hong Kong. Approximately 25% of the students are studying law, 34% business, and others majoring in disciplines including arts, education and social science.
Professor Alfred Chan, SBS, JP, the Chairperson of Equal Opportunities Commission delivered the keynote speech to the audience to kick off the event. The panellists then shared their insights on topics including Diversity & Inclusion Policies in Workplace and Recruitment and Personal and Career Development during the panel discussion sessions.
