Lights Out: Redefining Your Senses

Hong Kong

Since birth, we learn about the world and people around us through engaging our senses – taste, smell, sight, sound, and touch. We enrich our lives and gain pleasure through smelling and tasting delicious food, listening to classical music or pop songs, or watching movies and dramas. Many of us claim to know Hong Kong like the back of our hands, but have you imagined how your life would be without one of your core senses – sight? 

Community Business is delighted to present an one-of-a-kind session with trainers from the NGO Hong Kong Blind Union to guide you by experiencing what it's like to be visually impaired. This experiential session will challenge you to redefine and discover new ways to utilise your other senses and to complete everyday tasks as if you were visually impaired. Through reflection, you will gain a better understanding of the strengths, challenges, opportunities and needs of persons with disabilities, and share insights on how we can work together to make a difference.

Responsible Business Network Meeting 3 / Community Builders Meeting 4 (Joint-event)
Hong Kong

Around the world, there are stories of how impact investments are meeting needs in diverse areas and changing the trajectory of a variety of social issues. Impact investing exemplifies the idea that business can “do well by doing good” and this market is expected to grow to US$3 trillion. In this meeting, we will hear from experiences of local impact investors on their move into investing for social impact, their portfolio and the infrastructure that they wish to see put in place to promote impact investing in Hong Kong. We will also highlight valuable insights on what individuals and companies could do to support this burgeoning sector that bisects traditional investment and philanthropy.

Responsible Business Leadership: Building Disability Confidence

Hong Kong

We know from our diversity work with companies in Asia that disability is a subject that companies are beginning to address. Some companies are focusing their disability initiatives on community and outreach programmes. Others, particularly in countries such as Japan and China where governments have set quotas for the recruitment of people with disabilities, are looking to see how they can bring people with disabilities into their organisation as employees. After exploring the subject of disability from a personal perspective, we will take things back to the workplace in this session and discuss how we can, as employees and/or managers, build “disability confidence” – a term borrowed from the Business Disability Forum in the UK.

For enquires or registration, please contact Sammy Tsang.
 


11 October   EVENT
Community Investment Forum 3
Employee Engagement 2.0

Hong Kong

The Forum explores both the importance and challenges around engaging Gen Y employees as well as identifies strategies and approaches to enable companies to be more effective in this respect.

CSR 3.0: Building an Open Innovation Ecosystem
LexisNexis, Suite 3901, 39/F, Hopewell Centre, 183 Queen's Road East, Wan Chai, Hong Kong

From traditional concepts of CSR such as volunteering and philanthropy, to the more advanced Shared Value principle, the landscape of today’s CSR is rapidly changing. The same applies to the business environment. Therefore, it is imperative to understand the critical role CSR plays, and how to apply strategic business knowledge and competencies to maximise each company’s investment to the community. CSR 3.0, coined by Intel, refers to businesses going beyond the traditional framework of CSR, by engaging organisations from all sectors and facilitating a platform that allows everyone to identify the causes of social issues and share resources to come with an effective solution.

For enquires or registration, please contact Sammy Tsang.

6 December   EVENT
Community Investment Forum 4
Closing the Strategy-to-Execution Gap in CSR Initiatives 
Hong Kong

Like any business strategy, the chasm between strategic intent and execution in a company’s responsible business strategies jeopardises performance while increasing risk exposure. We have seen first-hand how local offices fail to implement CSR strategies set by global headquarter due to difference in landscape, priorities and more. The Forum presents a real-life case example of a Hong Kong company manages to minimise this gap to deliver results. It will also provide companies with guidelines for achieving better alignment between CSR strategy and execution, based on Community Business’ experience of advising local companies for over a decade.

For enquires or registration, please contact Sammy Tsang.

15 - 17 February   EVENT
24th World HRD Congress
Diversity and Inclusion 
Mumbai, India

In recent years, the term diversity has grown in use. The term regularly appears in the popular media, professional magazines, trade books and scholarly literature. To some it means tolerance, acceptance or perhaps an attitude. To others, diversity may mean inclusion, numbers or racial and gender differences. Still others see diversity as a code word for affirmative action or laws designed to ensure representation of minority groups. Unlike affirmative action, diversity is not a legal concept nor does it include only some people. Because we are all different, diversity includes everyone.

Take a look on the leaflet of the Congress for more information.
