"One thing I wish people knew about the Women of Hong Kong is not just a community – it's a movement," explains Sarah Vee, the founder of Women of Hong Kong (WOHK) to TMS. "We are all part of this movement to drive real change in our society. With an incredibly diverse member base, with women from all walks of life, including different age groups, professions, and backgrounds, we believe that our diversity is one of our greatest strengths towards creating a truly inclusive community that welcomes everyone."
WOHK is a vibrant celebration of unity and camaraderie among women in this bustling city. Going beyond the bounds of a mere group, it represents a powerful movement aspiring to foster support and inclusivity.
We recently launched TMS x WOHK's first editorial campaign, showcasing extraordinary women who are making a positive difference by uplifting others within their own circles. Today, we are excited to introduce Audrey Chan, the next woman featured in this campaign.
Chan is an entrepreneur and mentor from Hong Kong, dedicated to supporting ethnically diverse business leaders in her community.
Her commitment to uplifting underrepresented groups within Hong Kong has earned her a nomination by Vivian Seo, who leads the Community Business Support Program at the Foundation for Shared Impact (FSI). FSI is a not-for-profit dedicated to helping entrepreneurs and underrepresented entrepreneurs to grow and scale their businesses.
"Audrey has been our helpful partner and active sharer of knowledge and experience to our new community of ethnically diverse entrepreneurs ever since," explains Seo. "I [was] connected to Audrey when I was looking for mentors for the ethnically diverse entrepreneurs, and she agreed to commit to a 4-month journey to share her knowledge and experience running an organization."
Chan’s work with FSI's Mentorship Program for Ethnically Diverse Entrepreneurs has been instrumental in assisting members of the organization's Institute of Learning and Management with planning and designing initiatives, managing timelines and connecting others with other social impact organizations. Her contributions highlight the importance of accessible resources and support for individuals and their businesses from all backgrounds in Hong Kong and beyond.
Together, both Chan and Seo represent the essence of our campaign: to recognize and celebrate the incredible individuals in our communities who are making a difference in the world around them by uplifting others.
Stay tuned for more captivating stories of women from WOHK in the coming weeks who are making a difference, one member at a time.
