Pro Bono Hong Kong Seminar – Promoting Opportunities for Ethnic Minorities
With its plethora of restaurants, plush hotels and high-end shopping malls, Hong Kong is known to be a cosmopolitan and diverse place, but this diversity often comes at the price of widespread inequality of both income and opportunity.

About the Event
The event was chaired by Aaron Chan and Jason Lo, both Associates at DLA Piper in Responsible Business and Employment respectively. They outlined the current law on racial discrimination in the workplace and spoke about ways to prevent discriminatory practices in the recruitment and retention of employees. We also heard from guest speaker Dennis Wong, Director of Talent and Culture at Rosewood Hong Kong, a luxury hotel that employs many people from a variety of ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
Pro Bono Hong Kong would like to thank DLA Piper for the use of their offices and Bread Bunch who provided a lavish spread of snacks and refreshments. The caterers Bread Bunch are a social enterprise which has a policy of employing people from disadvantaged backgrounds as well as from ethnic minorities.
Pro Bono appreciates the organisation and support of our EOC Committee and volunteers Davyd Wong, Chantal Chung, Anne Cheng and the Community Participation Funding Programme on Equal Opportunities of the Equal Opportunities Commission.
