“Women of Hong Kong is a vibrant and diverse community that is very much community-driven. Our aim is to promote gender equality and empower women in Hong Kong,” explains Sarah Vee, the founder of Women of Hong Kong (WOHK) to TMS. “We're a community of women from all walks of life, united by our shared passion for supporting and uplifting one another. Our goal is to create a supportive and inclusive space for women in Hong Kong to connect and unlock opportunities.”
If WOHK is new to you, it's time to discover this extraordinary group. WOHK is a testament to the profound sense of connection and community among women in this thriving metropolis. It strives to create a nurturing and inclusive space, helping women in Hong Kong to forge meaningful connections and unlock a world of possibilities. WOHK transcends the boundaries of a conventional community; it is a catalyst for empowerment.
Embark on a journey of empowerment with TMS x WOHK's latest editorial campaign, shining a spotlight on extraordinary women who are making positive changes within our communities by uplifting their peers. Join us as we uncover the story of Gianne Chan.
Meet Gianne Chan, the co-owner of the creative agency Lexemedia who played a critical role in the success of SoleSoul Club and WMXN COLLECTIVE. Her support, guidance and extensive network have been instrumental in the growth of both businesses.
Bernice Li, who nominated Chan for this feature, credits her for introducing her to a community of growth-oriented women through WOHK. Together, they have partnered in various ventures, including a successful International Women's Day charity campaign. Chan's dedication to empowering women has been a source of inspiration for Li, and her passion for fostering a supportive environment has helped create lasting connections within the community.
"There's too much WOHK and Sarah have done for me, my businesses, mental health, support system – oh, you name it," says Li.
Through Chan’s guidance and support, Li has expanded her reach and impact as an educator on women's empowerment. As a feminist, brand and creative director and self-healer, Li's work focuses on normalizing and humanizing conversations that women need to have about gender stereotypes, sexuality, body image and traditional relationship frameworks. Chan’s support has helped Li manifest everything she's dreamed of, and both are committed to inspiring other women to show up authentically and unapologetically.
We are excited to share Chan’s story and those of other remarkable women over the next few weeks as we continue highlighting the impact of female empowerment. Stay tuned for more captivating narratives of women from WOHK who are making a difference, one community at a time.
