Celebrating World Refugee Day: Human Library
Join this human library on World Refugee Day to explore how you can employ refugees to embrace diversity and inclusion in the workplace in Hong Kong
On World Refugee Day 2018, Community Business and Centre For Refugees would like to invite you to join a line up of expert panelists to discuss the importance of Diversity and Inclusion in your workplace. In particular we will tackle the big questions surrounding refugee employment: do recognised refugees have the right to work in Hong Kong? How can YOU make a difference?
This event will offer a rare insight into the process refugees face to seek work permits, as well as highlight some key barriers broken and positive stories.
Who should attend:
Action-oriented individuals who would like to gain an in-depth understanding of pressing global, regional and local refugee issues, embrace social inclusion, and become part of a community of change makers who create positive social impact.

‘It’s sad, but a reality that I cannot recognise my own children on the phone. They have grown up without a father. Without even saying goodbye, I was forced to leave my children 14 years ago. I dream of the day when I will hug them, especially my daughter whom I never met as my wife was pregnant with her when I left. But I believe every single thing happens on purpose, and hope is the key!!’
