First introduced in Hong Kong by Community Business in 2013, and formerly known as Open To You, this pioneering programme brings together inclusive employers with university students and graduates with disabilities – with the aim of identifying potential employment opportunities and helping students/graduates prepare for employment. The programme works with students with disabilities such as physical impairments, visual impairments, hearing impairments, autism, mental illness, learning difficulties, ADHA etc.
With a pre-event workshop to build disability confidence for students and a half-day content-rich forum targeted at employers, the programme culminates in the hosting of an inclusive recruitment fair. Employers have the opportunity to position themselves as an employer of choice, whilst the students get to meet directly with employers and explore employment opportunities.
Since 2016, Fair Opportunity has been delivered in partnership with local Hong Kong partner, CareER.
*Fair Opportunity received the Innovation Award as part of the HKSAR Government’s 2015-16 Talent-Wise Employment Charter and Inclusive Organisation Recognition Scheme.
